Youth are often an underutilized resource and are an important part of the community.   While they are not old enough to vote or pay taxes, they represent the future of Greenville.   The Greenville Youth Council, created August 11, 2005 for high school students.  The purpose and establishment of the Council has provided an opportunity for youth to be more involved in the community and has created a platform where youth can express their concerns and challenges. 

The mission is to encourage youth to get involved in the community and local government; and the vision is a community where every youth feels valued, empowered and connected. 

The Council is a great way for the City to continue its efforts of providing a creative outlet for the youth to continue learning the value of teamwork, respect for self and others, a strong work ethic and what it means to be a responsible citizen.   The Council also provide opportunities for youth to increase their skills and to learn about local government. 

The Council’s focus is to give the next generation of youth leaders a voice in Greenville and Pitt County by empowering members to advocate for causes relevant to all youth and to collaborate and serve as one united voice. 

The Greenville Youth Council play an important role in communities and for young people.   The objectives of the Council are: 

  • To provide an organization for young people that can carry on projects for the benefit of the community. To be the central planning body that will allow youth to engage different groups within their community. 
  • To provide an opportunity for youth to share in local government matters and to learn to become responsible citizens. 
  • To initiate programs and projects that are of benefit to the youth and the community. 
  • To be the voice of youth for youth in the community.
