Tigard Youth Advisory Council
Tigard Youth Advisory participate in Halloween Event

The Tigard Youth Advisory Council (TYAC) is comprised of middle school and high school students who are committed to making positive change in the Tigard community.

If you are a middle school or high school student living in Tigard and are interested in joining TYAC, complete this application and return it to Kent Wyatt, kentw@tigard-or.gov, Interim Communications Manager.

TYAC members spent part of their summer volunteering for three programs.

Adopt-a-Road Program: We picked up litter on Main Street each month.  Our hope is that we have made downtown Tigard a more inviting place for everyone, whether you’re hoping to pick up a cup of coffee from Symposium, or simply play some table tennis at Paddle Palace.
 
Good Neighbor Center: We hosted a dinner for families staying at the Good Neighbor Center. Along with preparing the dinner, we learned more about each of the families and how we could do more to help.
 
With Love: Our members volunteered at With Love, a nonprofit organization that serves as a resource to foster families in the Portland metropolitan area. We spent the evening folding and organizing clothing for foster children.
 

We raised money to support our activities for the upcoming year by hosting concessions and a raffle at the four Movies in the Park this summer. Learn more about our activities on the TYAC Facebook page.
