The Youth Advisory Committee serves as the teen perspective on real life issues facing the City of Belmont. The YAC allows teens to work directly with adults while remaining focused on increasing civic engagement in Belmont. The YAC is for students who want to get involved in local government, socialize and debate hot topics, and who want to better prepare themselves for college and life beyond.   


Open to Belmont residents, grades 6-12. Approved applicants will be selected to a 1-year term of membership. 


The Youth Advisory Committee meets twice a month to discuss current events and plan future projects. 


The Youth Advisory Committee is coordinated by Youth & Teen Recreation Coordinator Jeffrey Giacoletto 650-637-2927.
