The purpose of the Youth Council is to provide an opportunity for the youth of West Point to acquire a greater knowledge of and appreciation for public service through active leadership and community participation. The Youth Council will serve West Point City by planning and implementing social, educational, cultural, recreational, and other activities for the youth and community. They will be working with the Mayor, City Council, City Administration, schools, civic clubs, senior citizens, and other service and leadership opportunities for the City youth. The goal of the Youth Council is to instill feelings of positive self-worth and esteem, eliminate potentially negative influences among our future community leaders, teach teamwork and respect for property rights, promote community pride, and bring the community together through various service projects and activities.
Youth Council Meetings will be held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm.
