The Mayor's Youth Council is a community based youth organization that is North Little Rock's response to meeting the goals for our youth as set out by America's Promise. To that end, opportunities will be provided for our youth to grow and learn through serving their community while volunteering in the metropolitan area's non-profit agencies.
To mentor - to provide an ongoing relationship with a caring adult.
To protect - to provide safe places and structured activities during non-school hours.
To nurture - to be sure that they have a healthy start.
To teach - to give them marketable skills through effective education.
To serve - to provide opportunities to give back through community service.
Cooperating Non-Profit Organizations
Our community's non-profit organizations work with the Council to provide them opportunities to experience service projects that willhelp them to understand that agency's role in the community. Such agencies are the Boys and Girls Club, the Arkansas Rice Depot, the Salvation Army, the american Cancer Society, Carelink (meals on wheels), the Children's Museum of Arkansas, the Museum of Discovery, the City of North Little Rock, Laman Library, Families are Special Adoption Agency, Arkansas Cares, and Our House Homeless Shelter. Last year the Council gave over 6000 hours of service to the area's non-profits. Twenty-seven members earned over 100 hours, thereby earning the Presidential Service Award. Six seniors received the scholarships of $1500 each for their service of over 100 hours. Scholarship funds were made available by the Coca Cola Company, Mid-South Promise Mini-grants, and the North Little Rock School District.
