San Diego - The City of San Diego City Council is committed to protecting and creating opportunities for the young people in their community. The city council is launching a new initiative to help empower and guide youth and young adults in the community.

The city council is seeking quality individuals to serve on a citizen’s youth advisory committee. These volunteers must agree to serve on an advisory committee for at least one year.

“I’m excited to launch this new youth initiative,” said San Diego Mayor Sally Lichtenberger. “Our goal is to include a cross-section of community leaders to be involved in this initiative. We’re looking for clergy, coaches, educators, government employees, parents, Scout leaders, youth group leaders, and concerned citizens to be a part of this important initiative.”
