Frederick youth are invited to be a force within City government. The Board of Aldermen voted to create a Youth Advisory Council for 14- to 18-year olds.
The council, promoted by Alderman Roger Wilson, will consist of 18 total members, 13 voting and five non-voting. Each member will be appointed by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. City residents ages 14 to 18 will make up the voting members.
The Youth Advisory Council’s primary goal is to expand involvement and gain insight from youth so their voices can be heard, and to address a concern about a lack of opportunities for emerging adults in the Frederick community. Alderman Wilson also hopes that the council will encourage more young people to become involved in public service.
