Duval youth council loses its voice

The Duval Youth Voice Council, created to give Jacksonville youth a platform for change and access to city leaders to help turn ideas into reality, has been scrapped.

The Jacksonville Children’s Commission pulled the plug on the council June 28, citing dwindling participation and a need to have the staff member assigned to the program focus on other duties. The youth council was down to two or three members regularly attending meetings.
