Youth Council Events.
Be part of the discussion and selection of the policy priority for the next legislative session. Receive a refresher from Youth Council members on the 2021 policy priority, and a recap of the 2021 bills. We will be breaking into small discussion groups and then selecting the 2022 policy to work on.
What students say:
“My favorite part of the day was figuring out which policy we want to focus on and learning about how this policy has been successful in other places in the U.S.”
“This is student voice driven, adult facilitated, youth are making a difference in Hawaiʻi and it is making news on the mainland.”
“I liked making friends that want to better society.”
