General Information
The Town of Ridgway Youth Advisory Council was established on July 8, 2020 via the adoption of Resolution No. 20-09 by the Ridgway Town Council. The Town Council recognizes youth to be a valuable resource when given the opportunity to provide public input and citizen participation in the determination of Town policies and procedures. In addition, the Town Council recognizes that having a Youth Advisory Council in place to serve as an advisory body to the Town Council, will empower youth, will give them opportunities for input on projects, programs, and events, and will afford them opportunities to have influence and impact on issues and decisions they care about. 

The goals of the Youth Advisory Council program are as follows:

a. To provide an opportunity for the youth of this community to acquire a greater knowledge of and appreciation for the American political system through active participation in that system.

b. To help the Ridgway Town Council solve the problems and accomplish the goals of this community by working directly with the representatives of the youth.

c. To serve the youth of this community by:

  • Informing the town government of the needs and wishes of the youth.
     
  • Planning and implementing social, educational, cultural, athletic and recreational activities for the youth.
     
  • Working with the Ridgway Town Council, Ridgway School District and other local organizations to provide new opportunities for Ridgway youth.
