Novi Youth Council
Mondays (bi-weekly), 3-4pm

In summer 2005, the Novi Youth Council adopted a policy resolution encouraging Novi youth to become civically active within the community as members of the Nov Youth Council. Each year the Novi City Council interviews and appoints school students to the Youth Council. The 21-member council is charged with making recommendations to the City Council concerning the needs of children, youth and families in the city and the appropriate means by which public and private agencies in cooperation with volunteer efforts may address such needs. The two year term will begin July 2018 and go through Dec 2019. If you are a Novi resident in 9-12 grade and are interested in applying for a position, please visit www.cityofnovi.org/youthcouncil or call the Community Relations Department at 248.735.5628.
