The Mayor’s Youth Council consists of a group of about 20 Bartlett students in grades 8-12 who are selected each year to work with the mayor and four other adult liaisons. They study problems that are facing today’s youth, learn about government and come up with community service projects that help give back to their city. See more information online at
