Join a CYAB Subcommittee focused on education needs! 

The Puget Sound Taxpayer Accountability Account (PSTAA) Advisory Subcommittee is requesting applications from volunteers interested in providing guidance to King County on the education needs of King County Youth. Young people (ages 16-24) are provided a $125 stipend for every month of active participation.   

The three investment priorities for PSTAA are:

  1. Increasing culturally relevant youth programs provided by the Racial Equity Coalition’s Love & Liberation project
  1. Improving college and career access and support through the implementation of King County Promise

The PSTAA Advisory Subcommittee is a subcommittee of the CYAB. A majority of the group’s members also serve as CYAB members, and the group is currently seeking at-large members.
