Youth Leadership Council in Flushing - Youth to Youth
Our Voice. Our Ideas. Our Solutions. 

Flushing's Youth Leadership Council, Youth to Youth, has many accomplishments, including their Manage Your Money 101 program on June 3, 2017 where they helped other teens learn basic financial skills. They also take pride on their NYC Service End of Year Event that took place on May 30, 2017.

The Youth to Youth council is made up of teens between the ages of 14–21 who work together to identify problems in their communities, and come up with solutions. If you're a teen and looking to make a difference in your community, we're looking for you to be a part of our council.
