The student will fill out the application form along with eight short answer questions and two letters of recommendation.
**This is for students who have an interest in representing the voices of other young people around the state. LYAC is an annually appointed body composed entirely of students that tackle issues affecting the youth of LA.
This 31 member council is open to any high school student in Louisiana (must be between the ages of 14 and 19.) The first meeting is a two-day seminar in July at the state capitol. The council then meets every other month on Saturday at LMA in Baton Rouge. It is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in state government. The students get to meet with legislators and bring a topic related to youth to the legislature during session.

Selective Service: Males turning 18
Male U.S. citizens, wherever they live, and male non-citizens in the United States, who have reached their 18th birthday but not their 26th, are required to register with the Selective Services. There are a few exceptions to this requirement, and those are described below. The proclamation under which registration is required was signed in 1890. It said that men born on or after January 1, 1960, must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Late registrations are accepted, but not once a man reaches age 26. (Note: Men may submit registration information at 17 years of age. Their information is held until 30 days prior to their 18th birthday, when it is then processed.

The Louisiana State Bar Association has an informative webpage for H.C.S. students who are or will soon become adults in the eyes of the law: https://www.lsba.org/Childrenslaw/BecomingAnAdult.aspx The site addresses many concerns.
