South Bend Youth Task Force

The City of South Bend’s Youth Task Force (SBYTF) gives the youth of South Bend an opportunity to participate in city government and make an impact in their community. Members of the Youth Task Force get to design and drive an advocacy program that targets issues that specifically affect the youth in the community. SBYTF members are offered the opportunity to volunteer in their community and give public officials constructive feedback and recommendations. It is a community-based group open to all South Bend residents in grades 9th through 12th who attends a school in city limits.
