The Youth Commission's Youth Advisory Committee is a group of up to 30 local teens who work with the Youth Commission to:

  • Plan, promote and participate in community service and educational activities for and with Lexington's youth and teens
  • Serve as youth leaders and role models for the community
  • Communicate current issues to town officials

Any Lexington resident entering the 9th to 12th grades in the upcoming school year is eligible, regardless of school or district.
