What is a Youth Council?

The mission of the Utah Association of Youth Councils is to provide opportunities for youth to develop mature citizenship, leadership, a sense of personal achievement, and an understanding of government.

Youth councils are organizations, usually associated with city or county governments, designed to educate youth and empower them to carry out service and become involved in civic opportunities. Different councils operate in different ways, but the main goal is the same: Work as a force for good in the local community.
