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, a 21st century youth council, 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.
