Apply for the 2023-2024 SYAC Academic Year Today!

School is almost back in session and it’s time to start thinking about the extracurricular activities to join that will make your college application stand out! Join SYAC to differentiate your resume, meet friends, and gain valuable leadership skills.

What is SYAC?

The Southlake Youth Action Commission is an official City Board open to Southlake high school students and Carroll ISD attendees. SYAC members serve one-year terms and act as the official youth voice of the city.

Who Should Join SYAC?

The Southlake Youth Action Commission is for you if you want to learn more about how your community functions, get an inside look at the daily workings of local government and provide a youth perspective on city matters! We are looking for dedicated students interested in community service to become a vital part of this official city board. Past SYAC members are dedicated scholars, curious leaders, and care about the community they live in!

What does SYAC Do?

SYAC meets monthly from October to May to learn all about the local government process. Serving as a SYAC member will teach you valuable skills such as conducting an official meeting, speaking in public, and managing a project. Meeting important city leaders, learning about different municipal services, and presenting to the City Council are typical activities on the SYAC monthly agenda! Other highlights include managing a service project, participating in Intern Day, and gaining valuable volunteer hours.

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of SYAC this year! Applications are available now and are due on August 31!

Keep Southlake Beautiful with The Great American Cleanup 2023!

It’s time for the Great American Cleanup once again!

Spring is here, and there’s no better time for a community-wide cleanup to keep our city looking fresh! Gather your friends and family and join Keep Southlake Beautiful as we do our part in The Great American Cleanup. Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is part of a nationwide effort in more than 20,000 communities year-round.

Join us on Saturday, May 13, at the Parkwood Training Center at 9:00 AM for a morning of city beautification and community-building. Keep Southlake Beautiful staff will be on-site at the Parkwood Training Center (the old Senior Center) at 307 Parkwood Dr. early in the morning to provide your volunteer team with a light breakfast. Drink some coffee, eat a bagel, and collect your cleanup supplies and KSB swag!

This year’s cleanup sites include available streets from our Adopt-A-Street program! Once you eat breakfast and pick up your supplies, you will be assigned a road to clean up. Head over to that street to play your part in beautifying Southlake. Once done, meet us back at Parkwood to drop off your trash bags and return your supplies! It’ll be a great morning to give back and earn volunteer hours!

We can’t wait to see you at The Great American Cleanup! Learn more about this event and register today!
