Youth Councils

April 18: #FLCityYouth -- How to start & maintain Youth Councils 

With more than 20% of Florida’s population under the age of 18, it is important for cities to create opportunities for youth to connect, inform and engage with their local government leaders. More and more Florida cities are achieving this goal through the creation of and active investment in youth councils. Join us on April 18 as we explore the benefits of a well-run youth council, discuss what it takes to get started, and share resources for breathing new life into existing councils to ensure opportunities are engaging and fresh. We will also host a live Q&A with two trusted leaders from right here in Florida. If you believe that young people are the future leaders of our communities, then make plans to attend this online learning opportunity today.

US Communities

May 16: How does US Communities help benefit my city? 

Cooperative purchasing provides resources and solutions to local and state government agencies in Florida seeking the best overall government pricing. The use of a cooperative ultimately reduces the total acquisition cost through economies of a scale. There are no fees to participate and no purchasing minimums, allowing maximum flexibility for participating agencies. Join us as we welcome representatives from U.S. Communities, the leading national cooperative purchasing program, in collaboration with your peers to gain a better understanding of how cooperatives work and learn from examples of success here in Florida.
