SYBAC engages high school students on a variety of broadband related topics, where they identify trends and strategies to improve broadband connectivity. Meetings will take place monthly, throughout the school year, via video conference, teleconference, and/or in-person.
The Statewide Youth Broadband Advisory Council (SYBAC) complements state efforts to gain input from various stakeholders that are passionate about broadband, technology, and apps that require high-speed Internet. The advisory council provides Iowa’s youth a voice in broadband and technology. This initiative allows high school students to help steer broadband and technology conversations. Our goal is to hear from the next generation.
SYBAC is open to 10th – 12th grade Iowa students. The council’s goal is to gather useful information on what high school students feel could impact high-speed Internet in their schools and in their communities. Students will identify effective strategies to improve broadband connectivity and community environments, which could assist in advocacy efforts for rural Internet connectivity.
