Mayor’s Youth Council

Home / City Profile / Community / Mayor’s Youth Council

The Richland Mayor’s Youth Council (RMYC) strives to “engage the youth of Richland with their community and local government.” RMYC’s goal is to teach students to dedicate their time serving in their community. If you are interested in taking an active role in community events and volunteer activities, RMYC will:

  • Establish leadership skills that you will carry with you your entire life and confidence to succeed in the future.
  • Involve youth in local government through participation on local boards and committees.
  • Increase youth voice and communication in Richland’s future direction
  • Increase volunteerism among youth in civic affairs

RMYC is made up of students in 9th to 12th grade attending Richland High School and/or living in Richland. Applications are taken in the spring for the following school year with selection based on recommendations and students’ desire to serve the community. The Council works many hours serving the community by working with REDA and other groups.  RMYC is responsible for working many community events such as Highway 49 Festivals, the community’s Christmas events, and many of the Senior Adult Events.

“The youth of our community are the future of our city. We must not only provide them with an education and caring environment, but a way to create an atmosphere in which they would like to live.”  Author Unknown
