Boone County Youth Cabinet
Now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year.
The Boone County Youth Cabinet (BCYC) is a leadership program for students in their junior year of high school who reside in Boone County. The BCYC helps students develop in the areas of leadership and civic responsibility encouraging students to become familiar with the legal and judicial process; engaging them in decision-making and service-learning; and offering youth opportunities to influence public policy.
BCYC begins with breakfast and team building in August and draws to a close in April. Approximately once a month, students are provided access to a variety of state and county officials, in order to learn from them, ask questions, and make suggestions. Members also participate in a service-learning project around the annual homeless census in January.
