The city of West Monroe is seeking applicants for the 2020-2021 Mayor’s Youth Council.

The Mayor’s Youth Council is a group of high-school students who will develop their individual leadership skills to strengthen the West Monroe community through volunteer service and greater awareness of how municipal government operates.

Members of the Mayor’s Youth Council will also provide valuable insight about issues affecting our community. Students will be selected through an application process.

If accepted to the Mayor’s Youth Council, students would be responsible for the following requirements: Attend an Induction Ceremony at City Hall; complete a minimum of 12 hours of community service; attend one Youth Council meeting every other month; and attend at least one West Monroe City Council meeting.

Applications are due to the West Monroe Mayor’s Office by Friday, August 21.
