The Oro Valley Youth Advisory Council (OVYAC) is a diverse group of youth advocates from several high schools in Oro Valley: Ironwood Ridge High School, Canyon del Oro High School, Catalina Foothills, Pusch Ridge, and BASIS Oro Valley.


Established in 2012, the Council was built on opinions from local youth with one common goal: to improve Oro Valley.  Students from all over town came together to found this organization with the intent to create a long-lasting establishment with roots in the community.


Our mission is to develop the voices of Oro Valley’s youth and channel our passions to enhance our community.  We aim to bridge gaps in our community, create and participate in public service projects, and serve as a voice for youth in the Oro Valley town government.
