Advisory Council of Teens (ACT) is the SCPL young adult advisory group. ACT is open to all San Lorenzo Valley young adults, ages 12-18.

The main focus of the ACT is young adult services, including programs, events, spaces, and policies. This is a good opportunity for students to fulfill community service credits, obtain job skills, develop leadership abilities, and acquire college extracurricular experience.

Also, ACT is a great outlet to meet great friends and most importantly, have fun with other like-minded individuals.
