MEET THE YOUNG LEADERS PAC BOARD OF GOVERNORS
Members of the Board of Governors are more than just club leaders, they set the standard for the next generation. Governors are living proof that the rising generation will be one of strong leadership, and a passion for justice and action, not just empty words.
Student Governors of the Young Leaders PAC are the voting members of the organization. The Board of Governors choose candidates to endorse, influence various pieces of legislation, distribute awards, and adopt a budget authorizing where monies should go. In addition, Student Governors’ signatures are affixed on every certificate of endorsement. Each Governor daily demonstrates a passion for leadership, from issuing bold proposals, to communicating with legislators about the issues that matter most.
Pursuant to the Charter of the Young Leaders Political Action Committee, there are five voting member seats -- with President Raphi Rebucas, Assistant President Jacob D. Malo, the senior-most gubernatorial seat held by Devin Huynh, another seat held by Pilar C. Dugard, and the junior-most seat held by Samantha M. Hall.

TIME AND TIME AGAIN, PRESIDENT REBUCAS AND HIS DESIRE TO SERVE HAVE BEEN CONSISTENTLY RECOGNIZED, AS HE CREATES GROUNDBREAKING SOLUTIONS TO OUR COMMUNITY'S MOST PRESSING CONCERNS.
The President of the Young Leaders Political Action Committee Board of Governors leads one of the largest student run political action committees in the United States. In the previous leadership term, the Young Leaders PAC raised thousands of dollars for local candidates and voter information. In addition, the PAC hosted numerous conventions and the President's presence was requested at dozens of fundraising events for candidates running on reforms that best represent youth interests.
Under the President's leadership, YLPAC Board of Governors oversees the overall fair practices of the committee, raises money for candidates running for office, and informs voters regarding important issues. The Young Leaders PAC is a bipartisan organization that celebrates diversity of political opinion in teenagers across the state.
ASSISTANT PRESIDENT MALO HAS BUILT A REPUTATION OF DEFENDING FREEDOM, CONTINUOUSLY PROVING TO BE NOT ONLY INFORMED, BUT PASSIONATE ABOUT THE ISSUES CONCERNING CALIFORNIA'S STUDENTS.
The Assistant President of the Young Leaders Political Action Committee Board of Governors is charged with the responsibility of being vociferous in the pursuit of youth representation.

The Assistant President of the Young Leaders PAC has all the duties of a Governor. In the absence of the President, they assume the role. Their votes are to register twice when there is a tie vote. The Assistant President’s office rotates every forty days, so that each Governor can hold the post.
While the Board of Governors is a non-partisan leadership dais, the scale shown below ranks the sitting members of the Board of Governors based on their political beliefs ranging from liberal and progressive, to traditional and conservative. The locations on the graph were concluded through various political tests, in addition to an examination of the proposals by which the board members voted for or against. As evidenced by the graphic, each member of the Board of Governors has a unique philosophy and leadership style. Because of the vast contrast in the beliefs of the board members, the Board of Governors' political beliefs and personal backgrounds create a balance which results in a more effective representation of the interests of California's young leaders.
