Welcome to the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council
Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome’s Youth Advisory Council develops the leadership of our youth.
The mission of Mayor Sharon Weston Broome’s Youth Advisory Council is to represent and advocate on behalf of the youth in the City of Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish. Every high school in East Baton Rouge Parish has the opportunity to have two representatives to serve on this council which will help seek solutions to issues defined by the youth of our community.
The students chosen must possess solid communications skills, be able to work well with others in a collaborative manner, be able to think holistically to identify problems, and also be willing to actively search for and work toward solutions. To accomplish their goals they will have access to the leaders in East Baton Rouge Parish and will work actively with them to create their shared vision of a Baton Rouge that values its youth.
To become a member the student must be 11th-12thth grade student. Selected Participants will have regular meetings twice a month and will attend events and activities related to their initiatives and interests.
