The National Youth Advocacy Coalition, or NYAC, which ceased to operate on May 12, 2011 was a organization which sought to fight discrimination against and promote the leadership and wellness for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LBGTQ) youth.
NYAC was founded in 1993. At its height NYAC had as many as five staff and a $550,000 budget. Much of its work centers on both social justice advocacy work, LGBTQ youth leadership development, and HIV/STI prevention and education work, as well as other health work, much of which is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For much of the past ten years, NYAC has put on a National Youth Summit in DC; the conference has been attended by as much as 600 youth.
