Carthage Main Street Youth Advisory Council Vice Chairman Perla Santana and Chairman Luke Horton at the 2021 Mainstreet Short Film Festival.

All current Carthage, Gary and Beckville freshmen, sophomores and juniors are invited to apply for the Carthage Main Street Youth Advisory Council or YAC.

YAC is the host to the Mainstreet Short Film Festival at the Esquire Theater in February each year. It provides counsel and support to Carthage Main Street and creates and participates in a variety of projects and community initiatives. Volunteer and service, both for your community as well as your own personal growth.

This is a fun way for students to get involved in the community and build their resumes. Current freshmen, sophomores and juniors can now apply for 3, 2 or 1 year terms respectively.

Interested students will be those that are enthusiastic about the arts, event planning, marketing, photography, social media, journalism/broadcast journalism, architecture, design, history, historic preservation, community revitalization, fundraising, youth leadership, government and/or community involvement.
