Youth Town Hall

Youth Town Hall is an annual event planned and sponsored by the Mayor's Youth Advisory Commission (MYAC). Youth Town Hall gives teens the opportunity to have direct input into policy affecting them and experience the results.

Youth Town Hall brings together middle and high school students in Tempe with community decision makers, including school board members, civic and business leaders, public service agencies, and elected officials. Youth and adults exchange ideas and propose viable solutions for issues facing Tempe’s youth.

Recommendations generated at the annual Town Hall are published in the Youth Town Hall Report. The report is presented to the Tempe City Council for possible action or policy changes. The report is also widely disseminated in our community. Over the years numerous Youth Town Hall recommendations have been implemented.
