The Minnesota Youth Council (MYC) is a collaborative of youth leaders that mobilizes their fellow middle and high school peers across the state to create equitable systems through youth-led outreach, education, and advocacy. As the only legislatively mandated student group of its kind in the country, these young people are leaders in their communities and across the state, leading the way with youth-centered systems change. Based on community input and surveys of young people, the Minnesota Youth Council members focus their impact on four issue areas: Health and Wellness, Environmental Justice, Education Equity, and Juvenile Justice. The Youth Representatives of the MYC partner with community organizations to create change across the state, and MYC youth members are leaders in many coalitions working for change in MN; Solutions Not Suspensions, Escape the Vape, Youth UBI (unemployment benefits for students), the Coalition to Increase Teachers of Color and American Indian Teachers in Minnesota, MNCASA + the Comprehensive Sex Education Coalition, the Coalition for Youth Justice, COPAL and the Cumulative Impacts Coalition, the Tobacco-Free Alliance, and more!
