Who We Are


The Irving Youth ACTION Council (IYAC) is a group of teens that works with the Youth Council and the Parks and Recreation staff to develop teen-specific programs, activities and events. The group also is actively involved in a variety of community service projects and leadership development initiatives.

IYAC meets at 6 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month.
