The City of Bartlett’s Mayor’s Youth Council consists of a group of 20 students who are selected each year through an application interview process. The students must be residents of Bartlett and in grades 8 – 12 to apply. Applications are available at the beginning of each school year in all Bartlett Middle and High Schools. They can be turned in to your school counselor.
This council works with the mayor and 4 other adult liaisons. They study problems that are facing today’s youth and come up with community service projects that help give back to our city. They also recruit and get other teens involved in this effort.
They will learn about government and what it takes to run a city. They will attend a Government Day in the spring with the mayor where he will take them by bus to visit many of the city departments. They will get to see firsthand what it takes to run a city on a day to day basis. It is an exciting opportunity for our young people, who will one day, be the ones leading our country.
