Youth Violence Prevention Advisory Council

Make a difference in your community and consider joining the Youth Violence Prevention Advisory Council. The advisory council is a youth volunteer opportunity to help curb youth violence in Aurora by advising city officials on and implementing youth-led strategies such as training, public awareness campaigns, and more. The council collaborates with Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare and will provide technical support through a youth-informed lens to other program partner agencies.  

Mission

Members will serve as key stakeholders that will discuss, provide feedback and assist with program development and implementation to ensure that efforts are youth-informed to improve the delivery of services. Members seek to give a voice to other Aurora youth and offer awareness of real-life challenges, barriers and possible solutions to help support and empower others.

Members

The advisory council is made up of up to 15 youth between the ages of 14 and 24. The city aims for a diverse group that represent the Aurora community. Youth representatives from other city youth councils are eligible to participate and serve as liaisons between the councils. Each member must commit to a one-year term and will be incentivized for their time.
