Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council

 

Join Charlotte-Mecklenburg's youth advisory council #cltmeckyouth

 

Be a civic leader

Be a civic leader for your school, neighborhood, and community. Join the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council (CMYC), the student advisory council for Charlotte-Mecklenburg.

Through the CMYC, high school students meet regularly to advise community leaders, represent and serve as a collective voice for young people, learn how to solve civic challenges, and join a diverse network of young civic leaders.

All local high school students are eligible to participate. CMYC welcomes students from public, charter, independent, religious, and home schools and youth organizations.

CMYC is a partnership of the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, and GenerationNation, and is chartered by the State of North Carolina.

How do I sign up?

First, join the email and text list. Then attend a meeting! 

Most meetings are held in the evening 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.

You'll need to attend at least one meeting per school quarter to maintain active membership. CMYC members who fulfill extended membership, leadership, and service requirements are eligible to join the Executive Committee.
