This year, the YAC Application process has an online component to make things easier than ever- but there are still items that you’ll need to bring with you to your interview. Be sure to utilize the provided checklist to make sure that you haven’t missed any steps! Please note– Not every YAC is the same! New Jersey is diverse and our youth staff reflects that diversity. We look for a mix of individuals who are both “in front of the scenes” and “behind the scenes” individuals. If you enjoyed your experience at LMTI and would like to share what you learned with the 2018 group, we hope you will consider applying to be a YAC. Please contact the LMTI office at 201-696-0368 if you have any questions. Best of luck!
