STUDENTS INVITED TO JOIN MAYOR'S YOUTH COUNCIL
The Council provides students an opportunity to learn about municipal government
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (February 16, 2018) -- Calling all students! Applications are now open for the next Mayor’s Youth Council.
The Mayor’s Youth Council was created by Mayor Jeri Muoio in 2014 to develop and mentor future leaders. The Council is comprised of high school students of all ages who meet monthly to learn about government workings and the importance of community service.
- · Provides students an opportunity to learn about municipal government;
· Organizes neighborhood youth meetings to discuss problems, needs and suggested improvements;
· Advises the City on activities for and by teens who conduct volunteer programs and give ideas to the City;
· Participates in community service activities and the Summer Engagement Program.
- Participating students must reside in and attend school in West Palm Beach. As Dreyfoos School of the Arts and Palm Beach Lakes High School are already well represented on the Mayor’s Youth Council, students from Cardinal Newman High School, Oxbridge Academy and Forest Hill High School are especially encouraged to apply.
