History and Mission

The youth council began in 1996 as the City/County Youth Council. In 2001, then-Mayor William A. Johnson Jr. created his Renaissance 2010 Plan and the youth council felt the need to re-focus their energy toward accomplishing the Mayor’s Renaissance goals. It was then that City/County Youth Council was re-created and renamed Youth Voice, One Vision. Although no longer tied to the 2010 plan, YVOV has since grown into a very active and involved youth council.

The City/County Youth Council was created by youth to bridge the city with the county and to encourage youth interests in civic planning, developing youth/adult partnerships, building the skills to interact with public officials, and to create activities to educate one another on the importance of civic involvement. Youth Voice, One Vision continues to allow youth to have a voice on issues in the community.
