Founded in 2002, the Youth Advisory Board advises the Louisville City Council on issues affecting the youth within Louisville. The Board consists of Louisville residents in grades 6-12.
Youth who are interested in local government, community issues and volunteering are encouraged to apply for a seat on the Youth Advisory Board. You must be a Louisville Resident in the 6th-12th grade and must be available the 1st Thursday night of each month as well as 2-4 hours additional per month.
Mission Statement: The Louisville Youth Advisory Board serves as a link between the City Council and the youth of Louisville to identify issues pertaining to youth, communicate the concerns of youth, and suggest possible City Council action to be taken. The Board seeks a diverse group of applicants in order to best represent the youth of the community. Through monthly volunteer projects, the board encourages youth involvement.
Louisville youth in grades 6-12 are encouraged to apply for a seat on the Youth Advisory Board. Learn about local government and have your voice heard.
The members of the 2003-2004 Board created the
"Have You Given Your Hour" Volunteer Campaign.
