Youth Advisory Council

The office of State Senator Will Brownsberger is forming a Youth Advisory Council for the 2023-2024 school year. 

About the Council

This council is an opportunity for high school students in the district to have a voice in government and advise their State Senator on issues that are important to them. Students will also learn how decisions are made and implemented in state government and begin actively engaging in the civic process. 

The council is open to constituent high school students in Fenway, Allston, Brighton, Watertown, Belmont, and West Cambridge. To determine whether or not I am your state senator, click here.

  • October 2-6 
  • January 8-12 
  • April 8-12 
  • June 10-14

Students must be able to attend all 4 meetings. The specific meeting days and times within these weeks will be determined based on availability once the council is formed.
