Join Youth Leadership Alliance, Charlotte‐Mecklenburg's new youth council. Care about
community and school issues? Want to make your voice heard on important policies and
decisions impacting children and youth? Here's your chance!
Open to all high school age youth – great for leaders/emerging leaders, journalists & all
others interested in leadership, news, policy issues, and government.
Teens work with and advise local officials and policymakers on issues and decisions
impacting K‐12 students, learn about local government, build civic leadership, and use
student voice to report on and highlight issues and government actions impacting youth.
Next meeting is Tuesday, October 15 at 6:00‐8:15PM
Youth council members host Patrick Cannon and Edwin Peacock, candidates for Charlotte
mayor, for a fun and engaging dialogue about city government and community issues.
The October 15th meeting is at the Metro School in downtown Charlotte. Most other youth
council meetings take place at the Government Center in Charlotte. 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.
