Join the Mayor’s Youth Council

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Mayor’s Youth Council (MYC) program provides youth leadership and civic engagement activities to high school students who reside in the city of Grand Rapids. Council members are diverse in the schools they attend and in the social and political points-of-view they hold.

What makes the MYC unique and rewarding for its participants is the monthly meetings with the mayor in which they discuss the issues of the day as well as agenda items that come before the City Commission. In addition, members of the MYC also participate in community services projects and plan the annual KidSpeak youth forum that takes place in the spring.   

Applications for the 2019-2020 MYC are due ASAP and are available by visiting
