Applications for the Mayor’s Youth Council are now available at City Hall.
The Mayor’s Youth Council is open to any student in grades 9-12 who attends Kosciusko High School. The applications should be filled out and returned to City Hall by Aug. 19.
“It is an organization to help develop young leaders and teach them to be involved in their community through volunteer work,” said Kosciusko Mayor Tim Kyle. “Members learn about city government and become active participants in local events.”
Last year, 39 students took part in the Youth Council.
The mission of the Mayor’s Youth Council is to seek and develop young leaders who exhibit excellence in character through punctuality, accountability and adherence to rules and regulations.
Members of the Youth Council participate in community events, volunteer projects, a statewide summit, Board of Aldermen meetings, citywide clean-up and more activities.
The Mayor’s Youth Council was started by former Mayor Jimmy Cockroft in 2011.
