The council is completely run by youth.  The council is a collaborative setting however the co-chairs (who are in 8th grade) will run the meetings. Please note that there will be an adult facilitator at each meeting to supervise.
You sure can! As long as you live somewhat close to the Westshore, we are happy to have you!
We would love to start having meetings asap, but we need enough members to do so. We are not accepting all applications, but for that reason, the sooner you apply, the greater your chance is to be accepted.
