Mayor's Youth Initiatives

Boys and Girls Club meets Mayor Barry

Mayor David Briley believes that every child deserves to grow up with hope and opportunity. To achieve this, the Mayor works hard to ensure that every child has access to a high quality education – regardless of their zip code.

Due to increases in youth violence, former Mayor Megan Barry organized a set of Youth Violence Summits in order to identify causes and solutions to this issue. More information about Youth Violence Initiatives.

The Mayor’s Youth Council provides ongoing and direct input on government policies that may affect young people, and act as a communication link between Metro and young people. More information about the Mayor’s Youth Council.
