The City of Palo Alto recognizes the importance of creating a positive, safe environment for teens in every community. Each teen program in the City of Palo Alto focuses on developing the spirit, mind and body; stimulating creativity; offering challenges; building developmental assets; and of course, having fun! We strive to help teens breakdown social and racial barriers, have respect for space, think before they act, and realize that their goals are obtainable. Our aim is to develop leaders and foster personal growth through our programs and leadership groups. Our charge is to affect the Palo Alto adolescent community in a positive way and collaborate with schools and other organizations to realize this ultimate goal.NOW ACCEPTING PALO ALTO YOUTH COUNCIL APPLICATIONS!
