Municipal Youth Councils are special citywide councils composed of students from different high schools within the city. They typically serve as an advisory board to the city commission/council. They are sometimes referred to as Youth Corps, Teen Advisory Boards or Mayor's Youth Councils.
Students who serve on youth councils are the leaders of tomorrow. It is important to expose them to municipal government at an early age. We hope your city, town or village will consider forming a youth council if you do not already have one. Contact Eryn Russell for additional information.

Municipal Youth Council Programs
Youth Council Annual Conference Program
The 2021 Youth Council Annual Conference Program has been cancelled. This program, which brings together over 100 youth from across the state, provides an opportunity for youth councils to work together on municipal issues, share ideas with peers and bring back solutions to their local communities.
