Community Advisory Councils / Newsletter

Our Success is dependent upon relationships within each of the respective communities we serve. Our Goal is to establish and maintain a Community Advisory Council in each judicial circuit where we provide services. Community Advisory Councils provide invaluable feeback and strategic advice that helps us improve our services and meet the unique needs of each community.

BAYS Community Advisory Council members come from diverse backgrounds. A member may be a juvenile justice stakeholder, a child or family advocate, a business partner, or an interested citizen. We look for members who genuinely care about their communities and want to help us to improve our services. Community Advisory Council members volunteer their time and talent to BAYS and help us to problem solve and plan for the future. We appreciate all of our Community Advisory Board members and thank them for their time, energy, and support.
