SUGAR LAND (Covering Fort Bend News) - Applications for the 2019-2020 Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council are now open and available at https://volunteer.sugarlandtx.gov. Interested students should submit completed applications by Oct. 1 at 5 p.m.
The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council empowers youth to become active community members by providing an overview of opportunities to impact the future of Sugar Land through local government public service. Students share newly gained knowledge to influence the community and make a difference in the city.
As part of MYAC, students tour city facilities, participate in a mock City Council meeting, work with other Sugar Land students and make a lasting impact on the city’s future.
The advisory council needs motivated and passionate Sugar Land youth to learn more about their community and serve as young ambassadors.
Eligible students must be high school juniors for the 2019-2020 school year. Students must also live in Sugar Land or communities in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction that have adopted strategic partnership agreements with the city, including portions of Riverstone.
