Kids in North Port are being asked to join the newly formed city Youth Council.

The group was formed to provide the City Commission a young person’s perspective on issues affecting the city.

Members of the council must be in 8th grade or high school.

The city is looking for representatives from students currently attending North Port High School, Imagine High School, Heron Creek Middle School, Woodland Middle School, homeschoolers, and five ‘at-large’ members.
