The Youth Advisory Council, first formed in August 2020, is a group of Anne Arundel County students who meet directly with the County Executive's Office monthly to discuss and create strategies that address issues important to them. Members are selected through an application process and serve a one year term.
The YAC Application period for 2022-2023 is now closed.
The County Executive’s Internship Program is designed to identify and develop the talents of our county’s youth and young adults. There are opportunities for high school juniors and seniors as well as college undergraduate and graduate students throughout the year. The program provides students with an opportunity to experience the fast-paced nature of a professional office, to build networks and relationships, to experience the role of public service in communities, and to develop new knowledge and skills that may give direction to their professional lives.Summer 2022 Future Success Program
