When & Where
Mayor's Youth Council
The Mayor's Youth Council provides Boston's young people with an active role in addressing youth issues. High school juniors and seniors are selected to serve as volunteer representatives of every neighborhood in the city. The young advocates outreach to Boston teens, inform them of existing opportunities and listen to suggestions on what the city can do to improve its youth oriented efforts.
The City of Boston, in partnership with Northeastern University and the Boston Bar Association, has sponsored the Mayor's Youth Council since 1994. The MYC meets twice a month to participate in team building trainings, leadership seminars and public speaking workshops. Forty representatives are appointed each spring for a one-year term. During the summer, they research youth programs available in their neighborhoods and conduct a survey of their peers to identify important issues affecting Boston's youth. Throughout the school year, they meet with each other and local youth organizations to discuss the issues identified from their survey.
