The Watertown Area Community Foundation Youth Council started in 2001 with the notion that young people care about others and their community and would like to have a voice in the issues, challenges and opportunities that they face both now and in the future.  The Council is a committee of the Foundation; they assess the needs of youth in Watertown, make grants to worthwhile youth serving projects and obtain leadership skills.
