Who can be a civic leader? YOU! Apply to be part of the next Youth Lead Charlotte-Mecklenburg program and build your civic leadership.
The GenerationNation program enables high school students to collaborate over a semester to learn how the community works, meet students from different schools and backgrounds, and develop knowledge and skills needed by a new generation of Charlotte-Mecklenburg civic leaders.
Learn about local government, civic leadership, the community’s history and future, and about big topics in our city and schools including economic opportunity, equity, segregation, economic development, city planning and growth, student voice, and more...and your role in helping to create solutions! After you complete YLCM, you're ready for active civic leadership on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Youth Council.
To ensure a diverse class of committed civic leaders, program admittance is competitive. The program will be virtual until further notice. Next program is Spring 2022.
