Mayor's Youth Committee

The Mayor's Youth Committee is a select group of juniors and seniors from high schools throughout Mesa. Each year, school principals and counselors choose students through a competitive process to represent their school on the committee.

MYC is a year-long program where students interact with the Mayor, City Council and City staff on a regular basis to learn the ins and outs of city government. MYC members attend monthly meetings, participate in community service opportunities and events, tour city departments and projects, and research current city issues. MYC members complete the Mayor's Assignment, a capstone project designed to encourage youth engagement in civic processes.


Students who successfully complete the requirements of the MYC program participate in a special graduation ceremony in the spring with the Mayor and their friends and family in attendance.  

For more information about the Mayor's Youth Committee or to find out how your school can participate, contact Melissa Randazzo at 480-644-3219 or
