The Goldsboro Mayor’s Youth Council was established in October of 1972 to offer an organization through which youth implement programs and develop projects and special events that will benefit them and their community. The Youth Council offers programs of civic involvement, career and leadership, education, and fun. The council serves as a means for young people to practice democracy in order to better prepare themselves for later responsibilities as citizens and serve as a line of communication between the youth and the adults of the community. The group is recognized for their annual gift-wrapping in the Berkeley Mall at Christmas.
Other activities include the Brian Center and Britthaven Bingo and many other activities and projects in the community. The council is also a chartered member of the State Youth Council. Membership consists of 9th-12th graders from the following schools: Wayne Preparatory Academy, Charles B. Aycock High School, Eastern Wayne High School, Goldsboro High School, Rosewood High School, Southern Wayne High School, Spring Creek High School, Wayne Early/Middle College High School, Wayne School of Engineering, Wayne Country Day, Faith Christian, Wayne Christian, and Home School Students. The council meets every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from September to June of each year at City Hall from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., in the City Council Chambers. Teens have lots of fun making a difference in their community!
