Carrollton Youth Council

The City of Carrollton Youth Council is a leadership development program for Carrollton High School students in Grades 9-12. Students are nominated by the CHS principal/administration and reviewed by City of Carrollton leadership. Once a student is in the program, they may choose to remain in the program for the duration of their high school career.

This partnership will foster mutually beneficial relationships for all who support local government, teaching and youth development.

Mission: To provide an avenue for Carrollton students to learn about and participate in municipal government and promote public awareness of the strengths and abilities of today’s youth.

  • Must be a resident of the city of Carrollton
  • Must maintain 85 GPA or higher
