Youth Council

The Nevada County Youth Council is dedicated to giving youth voice and choice in our community. The Youth Council is an innovative partnership between the Coalition for Nevada County Youth, Nevada County Adult and Family Services Commission, The Department of Social Services, The Nevada County Superintendent of Schools, Nevada County Probation, and the Sierra Mentoring Partnership.  Designed to foster the leadership skills and civic engagement of area youth, the Council believes in youth as change agents.

Our goals are:

  • To give young people a meaningful role in the policy and decision–making process of their community.
  • To facilitate adult/youth partnerships allowing young people becoming civically engaged and invested in their community.
