Lawrence Youth Council Founding Members


At a ceremony organized by the Mayor’s Health Task Force and held at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence, Lawrence Mayor Daniel Rivera welcomed the inaugural cohort of the Lawrence Youth Council (LYC). Four of the twelve founding members of the Lawrence Youth Council are outstanding YDO volunteers and mentors.

The LYC is charged with choosing a community topic to examine and research over a 10-month period and to generate a collective youth perspective for the City, providing recommendations for the Mayor, city council, and others where possible.

Congratulations and good luck to all contributing to the LYC!
