2020-2021 Palo Alto Youth Council Application
The Palo Alto Youth Council (PAYC) is a group of 15-20 highly dedicated high school students who serve as youth ambassadors to the City Council. Their purpose is to foster communications and connections between teens and the greater Palo Alto community. To achieve their mission statement, PAYC is actively engaged in the community, and identifies and addresses the key concerns that teenagers face.
Some of the programs PAYC has implemented in recent years include the 'Escaping Vaping', 'College Admissions after Covid', 'Finals Study Cram Slam', 'Palopalooza', as well as teen surveys and community service events. The PAYC is a great opportunity for high school students to conduct themselves as professionals, and grants them the freedom to take on active leadership roles.
