Youth Development Dept. forming new council.

Youth Development: Club kids (and all City kids) are encouraged to apply for membership to LA Youth Development Dept.’s Olivia Mitchell LA City Youth Council, which is accepting applications for its first citywide group. This council seats 30 youths from across the City to serve a one-year term. Members learn about the inner workings of local government, drive special community projects and civic events, and make policy and budget recommendations to elected and civic leaders of the City to improve the well-being, safety and achievement of young Angelenos.

The City’s Youth Development Department (YDD) and Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (EmpowerLA) oversee the LA City Youth Council, which honors the legacy of a public servant and living icon, Olivia Mitchell, whose passion for mentoring young Angelenos and love for our City has inspired countless government and community leaders over several decades.
