The Bellevue Youth Council meets twice a month to discuss current and future project, hear updates from action teams, and share local events in the school and community.


The Bellevue Youth Council is the largest organizational body of Bellevue Youth Link, and all Bellevue Youth Link members are required to attend two monthly meetings held at Bellevue City Hall. The council also hears presentations from guest speakers about events in the community and local government, and is responsible for originating and planning monthly service projects.

Service Projects

Every month, the Bellevue Youth Council, as a group, undertakes service project to improve the community. In the past, these projects have ranged from local food drives to fund-raisers for international aid (such as the recent Tsunami Victims Relief Dance).

Some special events the BYC has participated in:

  • Tsunami Victims Relief Dance

  • "Trick-or-Treat for Cans" Food Drive

  • Crossroads Thanksgiving Dinner

  • Winter Holiday Gift Wrapping

  • "Every Student Is A Winner" Fair

  • Youth Leadership Academy

  • 6th Street Fair

Bellevue Youth Council Meetings

The Council meets on the first and third Wednesday of every month. The first meeting is a planning meeting where the council hears updates from Action Teams and plans projects, while the second meeting of each month has a broader focus featuring guest speakers or social event.
