Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu created the Mayor's Youth Cabinet shortly after she took office in November, 2017. The purpose of the Youth Cabinet is to connect young people with their government and also allow them to have input on issues that affect them.
Bristol's young people, ages 10-18, are invited to be part of the Mayor's Youth Cabinet. The Youth Cabinet meetings are held each month before the City Council Meeting. There are different topics each month, and some guests speakers. The meetings are 45 minutes in length, and members can opt to stay for a part of the City Council meeting which begins at 7pm. This is not a series. Young people are free to attend any or all as their schedules allow.
