As a San Fernando High School student, I was selected to participate in Student Day in Government, which was Mayor Tom Bradley’s effort to introduce youth to local government from all parts of our city. That early introduction to local government aided my commitment to City service and fuels my work on prioritizing investments in youth.
I led the creation of the Olivia Mitchell Youth Council, which includes two youth representatives between the ages of 16-25 from each council district. This year-long program allows young people to learn the inner workings of city government.
Congratulations to the inaugural Olivia Mitchell LA City Youth Council!
