The Owensboro Youth Council is a Mayor appointed group of students representing each middle and high school in Owensboro-Daviess County. The purpose of the Owensboro Youth Council is to serve the Youth of this community by planning and implementing social, educational, cultural, and recreational activities and service projects for youth of the area and voicing the opinion of other youth not serving on the Council.  Members of the Youth Council strive to set a proper example for the youth of the community.
