September 17, 2018 (Moscow, Idaho) —
The City of Moscow is proud to announce a new and exciting opportunity for rising 11th-12th grade students. Beginning in the fall of 2018, the Moscow Mayor Bill Lambert will convene the first Moscow Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (MYAC). MYAC will provide youth an opportunity to increase their knowledge of civic education through practical hands-on experience.
Mayor Lambert believes that ensuring the success of the community in the future means investing in our youth today. As such, the MYAC will strive to involve youth in local government through participation on local boards and committees; Increase youth voice and communication in the City of Moscow’s future direction and volunteerism among youth and adults in civic affairs; and enhance civic education through leadership training.
MYAC members are selected through a competitive application process. An ideal MYAC membership will be composed of a diverse group of young people that represent all youth in Moscow. The primary criterion for selection will be the indication that the young person wants to make a difference here in Moscow and we will give them an opportunity to do just that.
Twenty MYAC members will be appointed as voting members from 11th -12th grades. In addition, a general membership of the MYAC will welcome 9th- 12th graders who desire to be general non-voting members. These non-voting members will able take part in MYAC activities and learn the role of a Council member as well as gain experience in how to be involved in local government and civic affairs.
