The Florida Youth Council

The Florida Youth Council is a group of youth (age 15-17) and emerging leaders (age 18-30) with disabilities or special health care needs that live in Florida.

The FYC is all about getting youth and emerging leaders involved in self-advocacy, peer mentoring and other activities that will improve the quality of life for youth and emerging leaders with disabilities in Florida. The program empowers youth and emerging leaders to decide what issues are important to their generation, to express those issues in their state and local communities, and to develop strategies to solve them.

The Florida Youth Council will offer a myriad of opportunities for interested youth and emerging leaders to participate, including an Annual Youth Summit, program content at The Family Café, a program Newsletter in both electronic and print formats, and a comprehensive online outreach program that takes advantage the power of social networking.

At this stage, we are ready to begin recruiting members. If you or someone you know would be interested in becoming part of the Florida Youth Council, you can download the application by following this link.

You can find more information on the Florida Youth Council by visiting their website at www.FloridaYouthCouncil.com, or by contacting our office any time. You can also learn more by following the links below.
