In our larger Salt Lake Valley community, this year's Youth Council worked with St. Andrew's Food Pantry, TOPS Soccer, Alta Tree Planting, and participated at Local Official's Day with the Legislature.
At our meetings, Youth Council members learned about Radon issues, land management issues, helmet safety and brain injuries, participated at Local Official's Day with the Legislature, attended a town meeting with Mayor Osborne, and worked on a proclamation regarding helmet safety to be presented to City Council. The Youth Council is a great opportunity for students in our community to connect with their community both by learning about it and giving service.
Monthly meetings will commence when school begins and will follow the 2014-2015 academic calendar.
