Tyler Yount is the Civic Engagement Coordinator in Mayor Andy Berke’s office and manages the Mayor's Youth Council. He works on City initiatives to increase the quality of engagement among citizens, community stakeholders and government officials. This means that more citizens are involved in City government whether its giving their input, becoming a community leader, or volunteering to help meet our goals as a city, and that City staff have the tools and training to make sure interacting with City government is a positive experience. Tyler has a passion for ensuring more young voices are heard in City government and getting more young people involved in their community, which is what led to his help in the design, launch, and operations of the first Mayor's Youth Council.
