YES Texas! Advisory Council

In an effort to establish the needs of future, young, and new educators and deliver products that meet those needs, the YES Texas! Advisory Council was formed. The council meets virtually monthly to discuss needs, ideas, and potential new programs. In addition to the virtual meetings, the council will meet in person in January 2018 to share ideas on how to provide the best chance for young educators to succeed in their profession.
