Northfield offers a unique opportunity for youth to get involved in local government, make change, and help give youth a louder, and more-often-heard voice. Opportunities include the Mayor’s Youth Council and the District Youth Council, as well as serving on City of Northfield Boards and Commissions and local non-profit boards.
Mayor’s Youth Council works with the Mayor of Northfield to identify issues important to Northfield young people and help design and implement solutions. They provide a youth voice in civic affairs, advising both the mayor and city council.
District Youth Council helps gather and provide youth input to the Northfield Public Schools and Northfield School Board.
