The Indio Youth Advisory Council will be premiering their youth led anti-gambling campaign project during the Indio City Council Meeting on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. at the Indio City Council Chambers located at 100 Civic Center Mall Indio, California 92201.
Supported by the California Friday Night Live Partnership (FNL) and made possible through funding from the California Office of Problem Gambling, Betting on Our Future (BOOF) is a problem gambling awareness campaign geared towards and driven by youth.
The goals of the BOOF media campaign are to: (1) inform youth about the issues and consequences associated with problem gambling, (2) empower youth to raise awareness about problem gambling and, (3) teach youth how to cause change in their communities.
The Indio Youth Advisory Council, better known as YAC, was established in 1998 and consists of high school students from the City of Indio looking to increase participation in their local government and community; as well as developing their leadership. They attend City Council Meetings and report on youth-related issues and projects - in essence, they are the voice of Indio youth.
