What is MYAC?
MYAC is a group of high school students who live within the municipal boundaries of Glendale, OR attend a high school within the municipal boundaries of Glendale. The youth commission volunteer for community service activities, raise funds for projects, and provides the Mayor with information from a teen’s perspective.
Beginning each spring, the Glendale Mayor’s Office accepts applications for the Glendale Mayor’s Youth Advisory Commission. To be eligible, a student must be high school age (9th – 12th grade) during the upcoming school year. He or she must live in the city of Glendale, OR attend a high school within the municipal boundaries of Glendale.
MYAC Membership is capped at 35 members who are appointed by the Mayor and our goal is to maintain diversity within our membership that represents each Glendale high school as well as home schooled students and private schools. MYAC members are invited to serve throughout their entire high school career.
MYAC raises money through projects by managing the chocolate pizza making booth during the Chocolate Affaire Festival in February and additional projects that come up. MYAC then uses this money for service projects throughout the community. Some of MYAC’s annual community service projects include purchasing Christmas gifts for the less fortunate through the Holiday Angels program, gleaning fruit for the local foodbank, assisting with the Mayor’s Charity initiatives, and the Rock and Roll Paint-A-Thon, where they paint homes for Glendale’s elderly and disabled homeowners.
