Bernville Borough passed a resolution in February 2019 to start a Junior Council Person (JCP) program in the borough as an approach for getting our community’s young adults involved in local government, identifying ways to improve the community for the youth, and instilling a sense of community pride. Young people are an essential part of our community, that we do not hear from often enough. An important goal of the junior council person program is to reduce this gap. Through this program, the JCP will be able to explain to his/her peers the importance of local government and how the decisions are made within the borough. Additionally, the JCP will help the borough council better understand what can be done to improve the community for its adolescent and young adult citizens.
