Minnesota Youth Council Advocacy
Through their work at the state legislature, the MYC acts as a voice for youth to the legislature and the governor. Read more about the work of the Minnesota Youth Council Committee.
The Alliance is seeking state funding to support the work of the Minnesota Youth Council and ensure that youth voices continues to have a place at the state capitol. Please call your representatives and ask them to support SF1047 and HF683.
The MYC members hear testimony on bills related to education and young people 2-3 times each legislative session. After each meeting, MYC Policy Committee members develop and send feedback letters to the authors of each bill heard.
