The Layton Community Action Council and Layton Youth Council
As president, Val Stratford oversees the work of the Stratford Insurance Group, his rapidly growing insurance company in Layton, Utah. Val Stratford volunteers actively in his community, giving time to the Layton Rotary Club and serving as the executive director of the Layton Community Action Council.
The Layton Community Action Council brings together civic-minded residents and the young leaders of tomorrow to serve the people of Layton, Utah. The Layton Youth Council is an offshoot of the Action Council. It is open to Layton-area residents aged 13 to 18 who would like to make a difference in their community. All of the Youth Council’s activities and service projects are orchestrated and directed by these teenagers.
Youth Council members serve at least 50 hours annually. Past projects have included throwing a prom at the Autumn Glow Senior Center, fundraisers for the Davis County Domestic Violence Shelter, and creating emergency preparedness kits for local officials.
