• Let Your Voice Be Heard

    Minority Youth Advisory Council

    The youth voice is a vital—and often missing—part of conversations in policing and social justice. As such, the Anne Arundel County Police Department is hosting a Minority Youth Advisory Council. One evening a month, Anne Arundel County students age 14-18 will have the opportunity to come together with local law enforcement. Meetings will last approximately 2 hours.

    Each meeting will begin with Police-Youth dialogue rooted in restorative justice, allowing every participant to give voice to their feelings and concerns with the support of the group. This will be followed by a town hall-style forum to address community concerns and needs. Officers will then assist in creating youth-led advocacy projects and recommendations based on identified needs.

    Youth will be encouraged to research and discuss topics of interest to them, and they will receive information on things like restorative practices, trauma, substance abuse prevention, mental health, etc. from guest speakers.

    If you or someone you know is interested in joining us, please use the link below to apply. Applications are due no later than close of business on Friday, November 13, 2020.
