MTAC & Youth in Action



1st Thursday of the Month at 6pm
(September through April)

Farmington Public Library Teen Zone

MTAC invites teens from across San Juan County to discuss and find ways to resolve teen related issues in the community.  Teens are encouraged to organize and present at MTAC to engage teens from throughout the community. Be a leader and represent your school and share or invite the student council at your school and other organizations to share in the dialogue.  At the end of each year, MTAC teens are encouraged to present at the Farmington City Council and present ideas for our community.

"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.
