Bristol young people, ages 10-18, are invited to be part of the Mayor’s Youth Cabinet. The purpose is to connect young people with their government and also allow them to have input on issues that affect them. The meetings will be held each month before the City Council Meeting.
There are different topics each month, and some guests speakers. The meetings are 45 minutes in length, and members can opt to stay for a part of the City Council meeting which begins at 7pm.
This is not a series. Young people are free to attend any and all as their schedules allow.
As with all Youth Cabinet events, please be sure to RSVP so we can accommodate all participants! Please meet in the Mayor’s Office before 6pm. Pick up is on the first floor of City Hall, outside of the Registrar’s office.

Participants will be asked to have parent/guardians sign waivers clearing them to be part of the television production. Copies of the releases can be requested in advance by calling the Mayor’s Office at 860-584-6520
