Council Duties

The Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) works to provide input and advise the Mayor on issues important to Albuquerque's youth. To do this effectively, each year the council completes a project pertaining to a specific topic they feel is affecting their peers, such as teen pregnancy, vaping, ect.

MYAC is composed of up to 21 members representing communities from across the City bringing the voice of our youth who are currently of high school age (freshman-senior).

Message from Mayor Keller

“We’re grateful to have so many young people dedicated to improving our communities and pushing us all to step up and take action. Young people are advocating on critical issues like gun violence and access to educational opportunities. The Youth Advisory Council gives kids a way to help make important changes throughout our city. I encourage youth from every corner of our city to apply and lend their voices to creating a safer and more inclusive Albuquerque.”

Upcoming Meetings

Meetings are held the first Thursday each month from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Mayor’s Office at 1 Civic Plaza, 11th floor.
