National Youth Council

National Youth Council students are difference-makers who are invited to participate in important regional, national and world events.  Students are given a seat at the table – with government, corporate and professional leaders.  They create a feedback loop between leaders and the next generation and make connections which help them find their place in higher education and the workforce.

All students who are in grades 6-12 are eligible to take part in National Youth Council meetings. Quarterly meetings take place on a regional level with video and phone call-in opportunities for students around the country. 

The student and youth voice is critical to capture and engage when it comes to environmental stewardship and leadership. Students today will inherit a changed climate and a compromised environment. Student leaders are the future business and political leaders of tomorrow. They deserve a platform, and the National Youth Council services this purpose. Project Green Schools is proud to provide this student leadership forum.
