The Maine Legislative Youth Advisory Council includes education-related issues in their deliberations.
Established in 2002 to advise the Maine Legislature and its committees on issues related to students, the Maine Legislative Youth Advisory Council is a permanent advisory council created in state statute.
It is composed of three legislative members and 18 youth members and meets at least eight times each year. The group holds at least two public hearings each year and facilitates an annual seminar on leadership, government and the legislature each August. Every year, the council submits a written report to the Legislature.
The Council may be the only of its kind authorized by law to submit legislation for consideration by the Legislature.
