The Town of Berthoud Youth Advisory Commission was formed in 2017 with two main goals in mind:
- Empower young minds through local opportunities and community support.
- Provide the Town of Berthoud insight and access to new ideas from voices currently unheard about important issues facing our community.
- Produce and present an annual report to the Board of Trustees with recommendations on how to provide more resource, support, and guidance for local youth.
- Attend meetings one time per month discussing matters they feel are pressing to their population.
- Be active in community at events whenever possible.
- Work alongside elected officials and community partners in helping create new opportunities for youth in Berthoud.
- Be no younger than 13 or older than 18 and attend a Berthoud school.
- Work with an adult community member appointed by the Town Board and a staff liaison to assist with meetings and priorities.
