Looking to get involved in your community? Do you live in Westminster? Are you in high school? If you answered yes to these questions, then the Youth Advisory Panel is right for you!

Who are we?  The Youth Advisory Panel is made up of two or more representatives from local area high schools as well as "at large" members who are home schooled within our city.

What do we do?  Our purpose is to advise City Council and city staff members about matters that concern youth and teens in our city today. These matters include development of citywide community and/or neighborhood programs that address both the short- and long-term needs of Westminster's youth and teen population. In addition to advising city leaders, we give back to our community by taking part in community service projects.

Where do we meet? Monthly meetings are currently being held virtually. For meeting information, please contact one of the YAP staff liaisons below.

When do we meet? The first Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. for meetings; community service times and days vary.
