Youth Contemporaries for Change

Youth Contemporaries for Change

The Young Contemporaries for Change (YCC) is a program operated by the Community Relations Council and open to young adults from around the area. The YCC is a leadership development initiative focused on enriching our community by engaging in meaningful discussions around issues affecting the Midlands and dedicated to promoting equity and inclusion throughout the area. 

We accomplish this mission by:

  • Building awareness of the governmental process and policies that affect our community.

  • Advocating for social justice, equity and inclusion, through dialog, service and education.

  • Mobilizing volunteers through education and information.
  • Developing and cultivating future leaders.

  • Coordinating and facilitating public discourse with the goal of making the Midlands a great place to live.
