Youth Advisory Council
The Friends of Hamilton County Parks Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council is composed of area students between the ages of 13 and 18 who are interested in parks, nature, and encouraging people to spend more time out of doors. Meeting monthly, these individuals give voice to an important part of Hamilton County’s population in the development of our parks and park-related programs. Youth Council members gain an overview of the county parks and the value they bring to the community while assisting in program development, new park initiatives and ideas, and increasing public awareness of and engagement with parks and the Friends of Hamilton County Parks. We encourage all youth who are interested in our parks, conservation and preservation of natural areas, and our mission to ensure that all our community members have access to parks that meet their needs and expectations in amazing ways, to apply.
