The youth-led group will work with a team of mentors to strategize, organize and mobilize for policy change and reform on issues they deem important, the release said. The team of mentors will consist of elected officials, faith leaders and community leaders who will provide guidance and resources to support the initiatives that come out of the council.
“I am constantly amazed by the young people in our communities,” George said in the release. “The Fort Bend Youth Leadership Council will strategize, organize, and advocate for true policy change on the issues they identify as a priority with support from a team of mentors.”
Interested youth can apply here. The meetings will be held on Zoom because of the coronavirus pandemic.
