About MYAC

The City of Sugar Land currently offers a Mayor's Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) program for high school student residents. At the end of each class, the program – now in its ninth year – is evaluated based upon the feedback of participating students.

Based on the feedback received, several changes will be implemented going forward:
  1. In order to enhance the curriculum offered and give selected students the opportunity to more fully participate in the activities offered, the program will only be open to high school juniors, and alumni and e-membership will no longer be offered. To be eligible to apply, students must live in 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. The curriculum calendar has been shifted to allow for activities to be held during the week in the spring and summer. Events will include an Induction ceremony, Mock Council presentations, a "think tank" 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.
