Youth Council Meets

Sycamore, IL….Over two dozen youth from seven area high schools have been selected to participate in State Representative Bob Pritchard’s (R-Hinckley) Youth Advisory Council.  The juniors and seniors were selected by their teachers for their awareness of public issues, leadership skills, and interest in government and history.

During the next four months, the council will provide Pritchard with a youth perspective on current legislation and state issues, learn more about the operations of state and local units of government, be exposed to various careers in government and discuss ways to influence public policy.  The Council will conclude with a two-day visit to Springfield and meetings with various state leaders and staff.

Pritchard has sponsored a youth council each year since 2004 as a way to engage youth.  “The future of our democracy depends upon an informed and involved citizenry,” he said.
