Keep High Point Beautiful Youth Council

KHPB Youth Council

We are now taking applications for the Keep High Point Beautiful Youth Council

The Keep High Point Beautiful Youth Council serves as an opportunity for high school students to voice their ideas on how we can improve High Point through beautification while protecting the environment. Youth Council members have the chance to learn more about the specific environmental challenges that we face in the Piedmont area and gain firsthand experience and knowledge of ways that we can improve our community.

The application can be found here

Important!  The deadline for Youth Council applications has been extended to March 13!
