[ARCHIVED] Town Accepting Youth Advisory Board Applications

The Town of Carrboro is accepting applications fortheCarrboro Youth Advisory Board (YAB). The Carrboro Board of Aldermen created the YAB in 2016 as a way to hear input from youth that live, go to school or work in Carrboro. The YAB will provide an outlet for the youth voice on Town matters and provide insight and experience for youth to interact with local government officials.


The Carrboro Youth Advisory Board will consist of 7-11 voting members. These members will be selected by the Mayor’s Office in consultation with the staff liaison. Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 18 years old and reside, work in or attend public, private or homeschool classes in Carrboro. No member may be enrolled as a full-time college student. The membership of the Board will reflect demographic and geographic diversity.


The purpose of the Carrboro Youth Advisory Board is to provide young people with an opportunity to participate in an advisory capacity in the decision-making process of local government, and to provide input to the Board of Aldermen about issues affecting young people and regarding how local government policies and actions affect young people. 


The Mayor’s Office will select members in the fall of each school year for a one year term which coincides with the current school year. Members may be reappointed for up to three (3) terms. The YAB reports to the Mayor and the Assistant to the Town Manager will serve as staff to the Carrboro Youth Advisory Board. 


At the first meeting of the Carrboro Youth Advisory Board each school year, the members of the Board will elect a Chair and a Vice Chair to preside over the Board’s meetings and determine monthly meeting times. Board members will be expected to attend and actively participate in all Board meetings. It is also expected that Board members will be asked, or required, to attend occasional leadership development programs and Board of Aldermen meetings (or other Town Advisory Board meetings). 


Any questions regarding application, process or the Board itself can be directed to Julie Eckenrode, jeckenrode@townofcarrboro.org.
