The City of Carrollton’s Youth Task Force is a group of teens appointed by the City Council. The YTF’s mission is:
The Youth Task Force takes the responsibility of accepting the leadership role for the youth of Carrollton by identifying, prioritizing and acting upon the following key issues concerning youth.
- To be informed about the resources for youth
- To establish and maintain communication between the youth and city government
