The Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) is collaboration between the City of Clayton and the Clayton School District. The program is designed to encourage high school students to become active in the community by participating in local government. The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for the youth of the City of Clayton to acquire a greater knowledge of and appreciation for the American political system through active participation in that system. The eleven high school juniors and seniors attend city commission meetings, meet with the mayor to discuss current issues, and work together on a community project. Terms are two years for juniors, one year for seniors.
The City of Clayton is seeking energetic, engaged students to serve on the Mayor's Youth Advisory Council. Applications for the upcoming school year are accepted in early spring through the end of May each year. Students must be entering the 11th or 12th grade in fall and do not need to attend School District of Clayton to apply.
