Lewiston Youth Advisory Council
LogoThe 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 15, 2014, the 2014 - 2015 membership was announced during the evening's City Council meeting. Eleven (11) youth were appointed; nine of them were able to attend the ceremony (pictured below).  To contact the Lewiston Youth Advisory Council:  (207) 513-000, X3205.
