Governor's Youth Advisory Council 2014-2015

Last Updated on Apr 2, 2014 at 2:24pm | Secondary Education


Below is the link for the applications for the Governor’s Youth Advisory Council for 2014-15.   Maryland Association of Student Councils (MASC) is allotted by law 15 seats on the council.  We have about 6 seats that are already taken by people who are entering their second term.  We need applicants to summit their applications before the deadline and hopefully MASC will be able to fill its 15 seats and maybe even more as there are others who sometimes choose our people as their nominees to the council.  This information can also be found on the Maryland Association of Student Councils website.
 

The Maryland Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) is pleased announce that the application for the 2014-2015 term is available beginning April 1, 2014.  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, State agencies, and other youth.
 
If you or someone you know would like to be a voice for youth in Maryland, direct them to the link above to complete the application.
 
Application submissions must include:
