The Youth Advisory Council creates a framework for youth engagement with Keep America Beautiful (KAB), building on the model of youth service with KAB community-based affiliates at the local and state levels. The newly-selected YAC members will provide an original point of view in assessing KAB programs, implement local service projects, and will act as ambassadors and leaders for youth service in their respective communities and states.

Pohl is very active in the Fayetteville High School Green Team, serving as the current president. During the 2013-14 school year she coordinated a school-wide recycling assessment and helped lead a recycling education campaign.

Through the generous support of the Wrigley Company Foundation, Youth Advisory Council members will meet with their counterparts from across the country at Keep America Beautiful's National Conference in Washington, D.C., which takes place January 27-29, 2015.
