Care about school and community issues that impact K-12 students? Want to make your voice heard on important policies and decisions? Meet friends from different backgrounds and schools! Here's your chance! Join the student advisory council for City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
Open to all high school age youth – great for leaders/emerging leaders, journalists & all others interested in leadership, news, policy issues, and government.
Teens advise local officials and policymakers on issues and decisions impacting K-12 students, network with students from across the community, learn about government and community issues, build civic leadership, and use student voice to report on and highlight issues and government actions impacting youth.
First, join the email and text list. Then attend a meeting!
Be sure you are on the email and text list. Most meetings are 6-8 PM at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 E 4th Street 28202. When you sign up, you will receive info, directions, etc. for each meeting. Free CATS passes and carpool information available to assist students with transportation.
