Aim Youth Councils Network

Across the state, Hoosier students play an integral role in preparing our cities and towns for the future through local youth advisory councils. Aim has launched a new network to amplify and support that vital mission. The Aim Youth Councils Network is committed to serving emerging leaders. Through the program, we endeavor to increase the number of municipal leaders who run local councils and offer networking opportunities and leadership development for youth.
