What is MYAC?
MYAC is a group of high school students who live within the municipal boundaries of Glendale. The youth commission volunteers for community service activities, raises 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, but can attend school outside of the city.
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, and the Rock and Roll Paint-A-Thon, where they paint homes for Glendale’s elderly and disabled homeowners.
If you have any questions, or would like more information about the Glendale Mayor’s Youth Advisory Commission, please contact Thomas Adkins or Tammy Phillips in the Glendale Office of the Mayor at 623-930-2260.
