Many city officials see their younger citizens as a resource for community problem-solving as well as potential future city and civic leaders. In these cities, youth councils are working with elected officials and city staff to tackle important issues and are discovering that their voices matter. To further engage with the future leaders of Georgia’s cities, GMA will be offering a Youth Leadership Program during the 2022 Cities United Summit.
Who Can Attend?
- Attendees must be enrolled in city sponsored youth council orleadership programs.
- We will accept up to five students per youth council.
- Students must be accompanied by a chaperone, who will be dedicatedto these group activities at all times.
- We will limit youth attendance to 50 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lunch and dinner on Sunday and breakfast on Monday morning are included in the registration fee.
