What is Youth Council?
Formally started in 2001. Simply put, the City of Concord Youth Council is a service-oriented organization that is comprised of students attending a public, private or home school within Cabarrus County. Each member serves the community at large attaining leadership skills and responsibilities in the form of programs and community service projects. Participation is based on volunteer hours earned each semester and optionally throughout the summer.
Why join CYC? Meeting peers from other high schools and backgrounds, gain perspective from your community, get an awesome t-shirt, make great memories and have fun doing it all!
How do you apply? Applications are available on this website February - May for the 2024-2025 school year. Students entering grades 9 thru 11 may apply. Membership is free. Each applicant will interview if accepted with the current Executive Board in May. Acceptance and denial letters are sent in June prior to Cabarrus County Schools letting out for the year.
If you have any questions please contact Advisor Montana Maurer.
