A RICH HERITAGE - A VIBRANT FUTURE

Youth Council

Mission: To provide opportunities for youth to develop mature citizenship, leadership, a sense of personal achievement, community service and understanding of government.

About

The Providence City Youth Council is open to Providence City youth entering grades 8 – 12. It is a great opportunity to learn about local government, help solve problems, perform service, and build your resume.

Generally, the youth council meets once per month. We plan service and activities in small committees and meet together to have fun and execute the events.
