Cherokee Youth Council provides youth from different communities, backgrounds, religions, ethnicities and economic levels an opportunity to work together and seek positive change for Cherokee.
The 2010-2011 Cherokee Youth Council worked hand in hand with local organizations and service agencies to develop the First Annual Cherokee Youth summit.
The Council was also excited to attend the 2010 World Leadership Awards which was presented at the Cobb Energy Centre by Usher's New Look Foundation. The Cherokee youth were able to hear inspiring testimonials by leaders from many different countries and youth who are making a difference around the world. The event included inspiring comments and performances by Usher, Justin Bieber, Ciara, and President Bill Clinton.
The Youth Vision
Our vision is a county where all youth believe that they can create an environment they wish to have and where they have access to the support and resources to make that environment a reality. We also envision a community that believes in and supports young people's right to self-expression and values youths' input and takes it seriously.
