On Sept. 25, Minnesota Alliance With Youth hosted a swearing in ceremony at the Holiday Inn Bloomington to honor the new and returning members of the Minnesota Youth Council. The Minnesota Youth Council, a collaboration made up of youth and adult partners from each of the eight Minnesota Congressional districts, provides young people with a forum to exercise their voice by connecting and mobilizing youth voice and action through partnerships with the Minnesota Legislature, Youthprise, and the Minnesota Department of Education. 

This year, Jessica Mendoza, a senior at Roseville Area High School, joined the Minnesota Youth Council. Second District Judge Laura Nelson led the young leaders in the Minnesota Youth Council pledge, which committed members to provide advice and recommendations to the legislature and the governor on issues affecting youth and serve as a mentor for political education in their community.
