The Lewiston Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) was established by the Lewiston City Council in 2001, with the Charter membership first meeting in September 2002. Each spring renders a new application/interview process, with each LYAC year running from July to July.
The mission of the LYAC is to "serve as an advisory council to the Lewiston City Council in regards to community issues affecting youth and shall serve as a liaison between the youth of the community and the City. The LYAC shall enable youth to work toward goals that empower all of the community’s youth and to undertake service projects that enhance the community."
Since first meeting in 2002, 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. LYAC is annually sponsored by the Lewiston Firefighters Association; thank you!
On July 19, 2022, the 2022 - 2023 membership was announced during the evening’s City Council meeting. Twelve of the fifteen members were present for recognition.
To contact the youth council, please call 207-513-3018 or email LYAC.
