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.
For more details watch this video.
To be eligible for consideration, students must reside in University Park and be in the 9th, 10th,
11th or 12th grade at the start of the upcoming academic year. All applicants are required
to interview with a selection panel comprised of staff and City Council members. YAC members
are expected to attend all group meetings and actively participate in all designated
events. Community service hour credits are available for those who serve on YAC. Once
selected, students are eligible to serve for the remainder of their high school years.
The University Park Youth Advisory Commission is a liaison between the youth of the City
and the City Council. YAC strives to provide service and leadership in the pursuit of effective change for the entire community.
