Empowered, caring youth dedicated to making community service a life-long commitment.
It is the mission of the Mayor’s Youth Corps:
The Mayor’s Youth Corps will be comprised of two students from each participating high school, both public and private, located within the city limits of Tampa as well as six at large members. Every effort will be made to ensure the Mayor’s Youth Corps represents the ethnic, gender and age diversity of the high school population. The initial Youth Corps will include 40 students. As the program evolves and develops with youth input, the program’s membership may grow.
