Applications are due by Friday, Aug. 14. Interviews will be scheduled for the week of Aug. 14. Confirmation is scheduled for the Sept. 5 Council Meeting. Candidates who are selected for MYAC will be contacted thereafter. The first MYAC meeting of the 2020/21 year will be at City Hall at 6 p.m., Sept. 15.

All applicants are asked to make a commitment to attend at least 80% of MYAC meetings and project events. The City Council established the Mukilteo Youth Advisory Committee (MYAC) in 2009 to operate as a liaison between youth of the community and the City.

The MYAC:

• makes policy recommendations to the City Council on matters that affect youth

• plans, organizes, coordinates and participates in drug and alcohol-free social, cultural, recreational, educational and other activities for youth. Some projects and events included the Mukilteo Art Contest, United Sports Banquet and Mukilteo Stands Behind Youth (suicide prevention and education)

• works to get more youth involved in government by engaging with other students in the City and serving as role models for all youth in Mukilteo. MYAC has held “mock City Council” meetings and deliberated on annexation and the disposition of Hawthorne Hall (old Boys & Girls Club)
