Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful is a Keep America Beautiful affiliate whose mission is “to find long-term solutions to environmental and quality of life issues through individual action.” Each year they form a team of promising young leaders who share an interest in keeping the environment and their community cleaner, greener, and more sustainable — they are called the Green Youth Advisory Council (GYAC). The 2022 GYAC class encompasses 21 high school students from Gwinnett County, eleven of which are returning members of the 2021 council. Being inducted into the GYAC means that these students are Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful ambassadors who participate in hands-on community beautification, litter prevention, and recycling. Council members also assist with the design and implementation of environmental programs like Food Waste Warrior, a program that helps find solutions to reduce food waste at several Gwinnett County Public Schools. Members of the Green Youth Advisory Council Class of 2022 include Amay Shah, Ariella Ayenesazan, Arshan Rafiq, Cynthia Bui, Daeun (Ella) Lee, Daniel Jung, Danielle Chun, Diya Lakwani, Emily Laycock, Hannah Cook, John (Jack) Prewitt, Logan Zimmerman, Mary Morris, Miles Simmons, Palice Zimmerman, Samara West, Shivali Singh, Stephanie Ramos, Suraj Chatoth, Tanner Dilworth, and Trevor Spake.
