Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council

 

We're civic leaders for our schools, neighborhoods, and community. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council (CMYC), the official, youth-driven, and interconnected student advisory council for City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

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 between youth, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, and GenerationNation, and is chartered by the State of North Carolina.
