BRIDGEPORT, CT - Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch today announced that he is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Mayor’s Youth Council. The new initiative provides youth a chance to learn about and participate in local government while serving in an advisory capacity to the Mayor on youth issues.

The Youth Council will be comprised of 10 high school students from across Bridgeport Public Schools and Vocational programs. Youth participants will build fundamental leadership skills and core competencies in policy change while working on community service projects related to education, violence/bullying, and environmental stewardship.

“My office is committed to building a new generation of young leaders who demonstrate a desire to be change agents in the Bridgeport community,” said Mayor Bill Finch about the new initiative. “As members of the council, youth will be required to attend city council meetings, participate in skill-building workshops, and job shadow high-level city officials.”
Members will be selected based on their desire to promote social change and leadership within their community. They may also be nominated for consideration by a school principal, guidance counselor, school superintendent, teacher, faith leader, or community leader.
