The City provides coaching and development to ensure youth Councilmembers have the tools they need to drive accountability for the YSP and are compensated for their work on the youth council. They serve 12-month terms and represent all council districts while including at-large members with a health equity focus on priority neighborhoods that have experienced disproportionate amounts of violence, poverty and impacts due to COVID-19.
The Youth Advisory Council was designed by recommendations provided during 2022's Youth Design Sessions where youth throughout the city informed its outreach, application, selection and retention process. In its first year which began in August 2022, it participated in a convening with other civic bodies from Los Angeles City and County as well as supported disbursement of Measure US Youth Fund dollars for youth serving organizations while presenting an update on YSP to City Council.
Kimberly Lim, District 1's Youth Advisory Councilmember said "It has been a very rewarding experience being part of Long Beach's First Youth Advisory Council…My vision is that we continue to strengthen our foundation so that we can effectively continue to make change in Long Beach."
Those interested can find additional application details on Office of Youth Development's website along with more information about Office of Youth Development itself.
