A community youth coalition pulls young people from across multiple sectors to reach common goals. The youth promote local change from a grassroots perspective through programming, campaigns, awareness, and community education. They mobilize local movement associated from the bottom-up rather than the top-down. Our future depends on their success!
The youth membership is inclusive from ages 14 - 19, and that membership elects the leadership team. Members must maintain an active role in the coalition, regularly attend meetings, and may join at any time.
The youth coalition meets monthly from August through May. The August meeting is considered the first meeting of the year, where leadership is appointed; there is a brief overview of the core values, expectations, and current work that is taking place within the coalition.
