The Mayor’s Youth Council (MYC) will participate in a community service event on Saturday at five different locations.
During an event titled “Young Leaders Across Wichita,” MYC members and other area youth will volunteer from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Wichita Children’s Home, the Lord’s Diner, Operation Holiday, Ronald McDonald House and the Boys and Girls Club.
An estimated 120 high school and middle school students are expected to participate in “Young Leaders Across Wichita.”
MYC is comprised of more than 30 youth from Wichita area high schools who are interested in local government, volunteer activities and community service such as Saturday’s event. The event includes youth volunteers from churches, schools and other civic groups.
MYC aims to raise youth awareness and engagement about community service. A previous MYC event called Junior Jumpstart was held in October, and taught area high school and middle school students about healthy lifestyle choices.
