The primary mission of the Mayor's Youth Advancement Council of Jonesboro is to involve youth in community issues and decisions, to advise the Mayor of the youth’s perspective, and to empower future leaders to become engaged within their community. The council is made up of local 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade students from Jonesboro schools, including Jonesboro High, Nettleton High, Valley View High, and Westside High.  The council currently has six task force committees:
