Bristol young people, ages 10-18, are invited to be part of the Mayor’s Youth Cabinet. The purpose is to connect young people with their government and also allow them to have input on issues that affect them. The meetings will be held each month before the City Council meeting. There will be different topics each month, and some guest speakers. The meetings will be 45 minutes in length, and members can opt to stay for a part of the City Council meeting which begins at 7 pm. This is not a series. Young people are free to attend any or all as their schedules allow.
In March, the Youth Cabinet will take a field trip to the Bristol Police Department and meet the Chief of Police as well as see some inner workings of their various divisions.
Youth members and parents should meet in the POLICE DEPT FRONT LOBBY no later than 6 pm. Parking is available on the street and across the street in the former Centre Mall parking area. Pick up is in the Police Dept Lobby at 645 pm.
** As with all Youth Cabinet events, please be sure to RSVP so we can accommodate all participants. https://www.facebook.com/events/1555068671225220/
