Executive Advisory Council
Each Foster Youth Services Coordinating Program (FYSCP) must establish a local Executive Advisory Council (EAC). The FYSCP coordinator is a permanent member of the EAC. Other members may include representatives from the county child welfare agency, the county probation department, local educational agencies, local postsecondary educational institutions, and community organizations. If possible, foster youth, caregivers, educational rights holders, dependency attorneys, court representatives, court-appointed special advocates, and other interested stakeholders may also be included. The EAC makes recommendations to the foster youth services program plan, establishes that the services in the program plan are needed, coordinates services to avoid redundancy, and aligns its efforts with local control and accountability plan priorities.
