MYLAC Logo

The Mayor's Young Leaders Advisory Council (YLAC) was established in 2014 and is composed of 50 high school juniors and seniors. YLAC gives youth with leadership potential the opportunity to learn more about city government and effective citizenship so they can make a positive difference as young leaders. The Council also shares ideas with city officials and advises on issues facing Jacksonville youth.
