Started in 2011, the Mayor's Youth Council (MYC) is an exciting new program that brings together high school students and community leaders. Each month, participating students will have the opportunity to meet and dialogue with local leaders in government, business, philanthropy, cultural arts, education, science and technology, and more!
The purpose of this new program is to complement academic studies, and:
- introduce students to leaders in our community from public, private, philanthropic and similar arenas;
- share the wisdom and ways of leadership;
- stimulate and feed curiosity and imagination; and
- cultivate interest in civic stewardship.
The program will commence with the school year each September and run through May. Students will meet on a regularly scheduled evening, once per month, from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM. Each workshop will feature a different leader, or a panel in some cases, who will work with the participants through interactive discussion, sub-groups and activities.
Information regarding participation and applications can be found on the Mayor's Youth Council website.
