The Lewiston Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) was established by the Lewiston City Council in 2001, with the Charter membership first meeting in September 2002.
Since then, members have worked closely with municipal staff, state/local officials, and members of the community on various initiatives that have been very positive for the City of Lewiston.
On July 16, 2013, the 2013 - 2014 membership was announced during the evening's City Council meeting. Twenty-two youth had applied for fifteen slots! Eleven could attend the meeting. LYAC's 2002 - 2013 History.
