STUDENT ADVISORY COUNCIL OVERVIEW AND PAST ACTIVITIES

The Student Advisory Council, better known as SAC, was based on an idea enthusiastically championed by former Titusville Mayor Larry Bartley.   Enacted by Resolution of Titusville's City Council in 1993, the mission of the SAC is to encourage the involvement of young people in community affairs and create an awareness of their rights and responsibilities as citizens of Titusville.

Annually, the Council develops two to four ideas and initiatives that they will focus on accomplishing during their term of office.  At the conclusion of each year, they provide an annual report to Titusville City Council on their activities.

The Council is comprised of 12 students from Astronaut and Titusville High Schools and the North Brevard Home School Association.  Each school is represented on the Council by a student from each grade level.  They meet at least monthly at City Hall, or more often if warranted by the projects they undertake.

Since the creation of the Student Advisory Council, members have translated their mission statement into positive action. Throughout our community are the visible results of their drive and focus such as the traffic signal at U.S. Highway #1 and South Terrier Trail in front of Titusville High School.  This was a multi-year project initiated by SAC, requiring interfacing with government entities of all levels (city, county, and state) and required the SAC to display a great deal of tenacity as succeeding Councils' continued the eight year project to its successful conclusion.  The traffic signal turn lane at S.R. 405 and Park Avenue was also a project initially identified as a community need by the SAC.  The safety and responsibility of Titusville's teens has been a recurring theme of multiple Councils, resulting in an award-winning video of the consequences of making false bomb threats, a video on the tragic consequences of underage drinking and driving, action in support of legislative initiatives that address teenage alcohol consumption, and implementation of an anti-drinking webpage, drinkdrivedie.com.

Entertainment venues for their peers have also been a recurring endeavor of SAC.  Over the years, the members have partnered with government, community and private entities to form coalitions which ultimately resulted in the creation of two teen centers and a skateboard park.  Their experience in partnering also translated to other successful opportunities offered to high school students including leadership seminars, shadowing of municipal government positions and learning the intricacies of how government works through participation in mock city council meetings.

S.A.C.: 1 council, 3 schools, 12 members  =  High School teens improving Titusville's community.

Meetings:  3rd Tuesday of the Month at 4:00 p.m.

Length of Term:  One Year (August through April)
