City Council votes to establish youth council

On Tuesday, June 6, the Beaumont City Council voted to formally establish a Beaumont Youth Advisory Council (BYAC). The BYAC will be composed of 12 students who must live in Beaumont, be in the 10th or 11th grade, and attend one of these six schools:

  • Central High School
  • Harmony Science Academy
  • Legacy Christian Academy
  • Kelly High School
  • Ozen High School
  • West Brook High School

Administrators from each school will recommend two students to serve on the Youth Council. These students will then be confirmed by the Beaumont City Council.

The goal of the BYAC is to provide local youths with the opportunity to develop leadership and citizenship skills while learning about and encouraging involvement in city government.
