Mayor's Youth Advisory Committee



MYAC is a program that contributes to the community in many ways including Youth Town Hall, Youth Government Day, and the Mayor's Youth Leadership Summit. Students are involved in many volunteer efforts throughout the community and assist the Town Council in identifying problems effecting our community and most importantly, finding solutions.
The MYAC class for 2015-2016 has been selected, however, there are still opportunities to get involved! Currently we are accepting students for Youth Town Hall. Other opportunities will be Youth Government Day and then the Mayor’s Youth Leadership Summit, check back for more information.

MYAC Meetings

MYAC meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month at Gilbert Town Hall (50 E. Civic Center Dr.) in Room 300 from 5:00-6:30 p.m.
