"Providing the youth of with a vehicle to learn about government, participate in the process and to represent and articulate the needs of youth in this County."
-CCYC Mission
We believe that leaders are not necessarily born, but are definitely made. We see each of our young people as "walking possibilities," and that we as present leaders have the obligation to cultivate future leaders. We further believe that the synthesis of our personal example, theoretical instruction and practical application provides a fertile environment for young people to become positive young leaders, enhance their community and contribute to growth of our community.
In 1992, after a variety of governmental, business and community initiatives on behalf of youth, Dr. Priscilla D. Thomas, County Commissioner, District 8, realized her vision to have a formal organization in place that would directly involve youth in the governmental process as well as develop leadership skills.
