About MYAC

The City of Sugar Land currently offers a Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) program for high school student residents.

Qualification Criteria:
  1. The program will only be open to incoming high school juniors. To be eligible to apply, students must live in the City of Sugar Land, though residents of the extra territorial jurisdiction (ETJ) communities with which the city has executed Strategic Partnership Agreements will be considered as well.
  2. Students themselves should complete the application. Applications will be evaluated and select students will be offered an interview. Admissions will be offered based on final evaluation of interview and applications. Enrollment is limited and diversity is sought in class makeup.
  3. Students must commit to attending all sessions. Events will include an Induction ceremony, Mock Council presentations, a Meet the Chiefs session, and city tour, among others.

MYAC Code of Conduct
A community-wide initiative to reinforce positive behaviors and attitudes among all Sugar Land teen residents and visitors.

I pledge to join the City of Sugar Land in being a role model community where we all respectfully and harmoniously live, work, shop and play, and to encourage personal responsibility and a commitment to ensuring Sugar Land remains a community of respect, embracing and celebrating our diversity.

Therefore, I promise to:
  • Be a caring citizen, always looking out for and supporting others.
  • Respect and listen to those in authority.
  • Be considerate of the environment and the property of others.
  • Be respectful in my behavior and attitude by not being disorderly, disruptive, or using inappropriate language.
  • Choose not to engage in behaviors or acts harmful or offensive to others or myself.
  • Always be brave, steadfast, and stand up for and speak up for what is right.
