The City of Milwaukee Youth Council is a powerful and diverse group of young leaders committed to making a difference in Milwaukee. We work on issues important to youth, talk to our peers, family and neighbors about their concerns and take action to address them.
Youth Council members represent young people in their aldermanic districts. We meet with leaders like the Mayor, Common Council, School Superintendent, business owners, and community groups to advocate for youth. The community is invited to attend all Youth Council meetings and most meetings are broadcast on the City Channel.
We are looking for committed young leaders between the ages of 14-18 with the time, energy, and passion to work for change. Youth Council members must live in the City of Milwaukee.
The MKE Peace Project (MPP) is looking to challenge youth in the central city to initiate, at the group level, an assessment of the factors that contribute to violence in their neighborhoods and subsequently, to provide a solution to the problem. Youth are being asked to submit written entries to be considered for the project, and prizes are also being offered for the top entries. For more information, please go to the MKE Peace Project page
