San Leandro Youth Advisory Commission (YAC) Now Accepting Applications

Mayor Pauline Cutter and the San Leandro City Council invite local youth to submit applications for the 2021-22 Youth Advisory Commission (YAC). Commissioners advise the City Council on youth-related issues as well as provide recommendations on projects and events. They also learn about roles, services and local government programs.

YAC meets at 6pm on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays throughout the school year. YAC will meet via ZOOM until it is safe to meet in the Sister Cities Gallery in City Hall, located at 835 East 14th Street in San Leandro. The Commission consists of 21 members who represent the diverse youth community in San Leandro.

To be eligible to apply, youth must live in San Leandro or attend a school that serves San Leandro residents, be in grades 9, 10, 11, or 12, and commit between 6 to 8 hours per month for meetings and project involvement. Each commissioner is appointed to serve a one-year term and may be renewed for three terms thereafter as long as they remain in high school.
