Welcome to the District 1 Youth Page!
The District 1 Community Council is intentional about empowering the youth in District 1 to take leadership roles on issues, activities, and decision making in their neighborhoods.
Projects Youth developed and worked on:
The District 1 Community Council is happy to have formally joined with Young Mentors Group (YMG) so that this group is a program of our organization. YMG meets on Thursday evenings at the SunRay Library at 6:00 PM. YMG has been involved in a wide variety of projects over the years - Freedom School, J-Shop (Journalism activities), planning for the SunRay Library remodeling and for the Gold Line Station Areas, cross-cultural dialogues, camping activities, bowling, meeting with adult mentors and so much more.
For more information about YMG, check out their Facebook group. Timothy Turner, a District 1 board member, is the adult mentor of this group. He can be reached through the D1 office.
A message from some of our youth members: go vote on November 7th, 2017 for Saint Paul's Mayor and School Board Members!
