Youth Engagement

The youth of Burlington are an integral part of our current landscape and our vibrant future.

The City wants young voices and perspectives at the table and has a long-standing commitment to that through the Youth On Boards program. We invite you to learn more about this unique opportunity to influence City policy and actions through serving as a youth member on one of our many boards and commissions.

The City also has a semester-based City Hall Internship Program, where high school and college-age youth can gain hands-on experience working directly with City staff on research, events, and a range of initiatives. Please take a look at the application on behalf of yourself or to refer someone you know.

To find out more about these opportunities and others for Burlington youth, please contact Phet Keomanyvanh at or 865-7172.
