Batesville Mayor's Youth Council

The Batesville Mayor’s Youth Council is an effort to civically engage our youngest citizens. MYC is a great opportunity to give youth a voice and a chance to identify and solve community issues from a youth perspective. At the same time, MYC members are resources for elected officials to receive advice on issues they face, especially those decisions that directly affect young people.


We, the members of the Batesville Mayor’s Youth Council, are individuals working in directions to serve the youth as well as the entire community. We will accomplish this by working with our fellow youth and city officials, improving our understanding of city government. With these objectives, we will improve the city of Batesville for generations to come.
