Youth Link Board

The Youth Link Board was formed in 1991 by the City Council to establish policies that govern Youth Link. The board advises the council and the city manager on issues facing Bellevue’s youth. The board involves youth in current community issues, utilizes youth ideas to address community concerns and create new outlets for youth opportunities.
