Calaveras Youth Council

YC Logo
The Calaveras County Youth Council is a countywide coalition of youth from all around Calaveras County. These students are innovative minds with creative ideas on how they want to make change in their community. Their leadership and desire to get their voices heard is the foundation of their values. They study the problems and concerns of youth in Calaveras County and conduct round table discussions with adult leaders to build relationships and identify the sources of these issues. Then they implement community programs and events.
