"Helping, Reaching, Speaking Out" Mayors Teen Advisory Council. Be a representative from your school and encourage your friends (ages 12-18) to join the teen council that meets on the first Thursday of the month at 6:00pm in the Teen Zone at the Farmington Public Library. The teen council's not only for Farmington teens, it is for San Juan County teens!
The focus of MTAC is Positive Youth Development: Youth contribute to their community; feel safe in their environment; achieve educational success; have marketable skills and develop personal and social skills. Teens who participate in the teen council committees are given responsibilities that positively affect the libraries they service while gaining skills that can help them in school and in the world of work. Teens collaborate in the committees and share information and nurture mutual respect and understanding between the generations.
Teens organize and present at the Farmington City Council as leaders about teen issues. Bring your ideas for the community and engage in a dialogue with Mayor Tommy Roberts.
UmattR and middle and high school representatives and San Juan County Partnership work together in the prevention of underage drinkingand conducting sticker shocks.
