Mayor's Youth Council

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

MYC - Logo-01MAYOR'S YOUTH council overview

The City of Clarksville’s Mayor’s Youth Council is a group of young people working toward the common purpose of developing their individual leadership skills to strengthen their community through volunteer service and increased communication with elected officials. We are looking for students who are interested in developing and leading initiatives with the support of adult mentors. 

The Mayor’s Youth Council is more than just a service club because members also train and involve their peers in service leadership. They also provide valuable insight on issues affecting youth and the community.
