The City of Rockwall is accepting applications for students who wish to be considered for next school year’s 2019-2020 Rockwall Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The City Council will fill six vacancies on the YAC for the upcoming school year. Applicants should be freshmen through seniors who reside within the city limits of the City of Rockwall.
The purpose of the Rockwall YAC is to provide participation by local youth in municipal government and to teach students more about how local government works. The Rockwall Youth Advisory Council provides opportunities for positive community impact through organized participation in various city-sponsored activities and events. YAC students may also be asked to become involved in initiatives that benefit local youth.
