Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC) Tribal Advisory Committee (TAC)


The YRTC TAC serves in an advisory capacity to provide culturally-appropriate guidance to the YRTC Governing Body.  The YRTC TAC is comprised of 15 representatives.  Each member is selected by California Area Tribal Leaders during the Annual Tribal Consultation (during which alternate members are also determined).  The YRTC TAC meets as needed.
