In 2008, the Maryland Youth Advisory Council was established through the Maryland General Assembly to ensure that Maryland youth are given the opportunity to provide feedback and recommendations regarding public policies and programs that affect their future and to take a leadership role in creating meaningful change. By providing testimony in Annapolis and policy recommendations, council members have the opportunity to raise their voices and share their experiences with the Governor, State legislature, agencies, and other youth.
MASC is able to appoint several students to serve on the Maryland Youth Advisory Councils (MYAC). Rising freshman through seniors are able to apply. Service is for a two-year term, except for any rising seniors, who would only serve a one-year term.
NOTE: to be appointed through MASC, you need to check off the Maryland Association of Student Councils for the question “How did you hear about the Maryland Youth Advisory Council?”
