While learning about local government procedures and policies, YAC members help promote the City's ongoing recycling program and work at various annual events, including the summer fishing derby and holiday tree lighting in Snider Plaza. YAC members also act as an advisory group for the City Council when there are items being considered that could directly impact teenagers. In addition to special activities, YAC members meet on a monthly basis to review routine business.
