Two New Richmond High School students are now advisory members of our Utility Commission - Matt Roukema and Alanna Warner. For the past several months New Richmond City Government has been partnering with the YOUth and Family Initiatve organization to involve the youth in government decision making. The purpose of the YOUth and Family Initiative is to encourage our community to focus purposefully on helping young people grow up to be healthy, caring and responsible individuals.

It is an effort to build a community-wide commitment to connect, strengthen and expand a culture of support for our youth and families.

This initiative is dedicate to carry out Search Institute’s research based 40 Developmental Assets that are critical for young people’s successful growth and development.
