Our Community Youth Council (CYC), provides youth inspire workshop participants (grades 9 and beyond) with an opportunity to take a leadership role and to drive community change.

Members of the CYC support the development of our peer network, DTBY’s fundraising campaigns, and play a lead role in organizing the Youth Inspire Community Days.

In the spirit of “service-above-self”, the CYC gives young leaders an opportunity to develop their leadership skills, engage with a network of like-minded peers, to make a mark in their community, and to gain community service hours.

CYC embraces the movement of purpose, authenticity, and most importantly peer mentorship. We are stronger together!

Check out our first Youth Inspire Community Day

Our annual Youth Inspire Community Day – which debuted on November 18 2021, is a summit for students Grades 9-12 hosted by our Community Youth Council, filled with inspiring keynote speakers, personal development programming, engaging activities and peer-mentorship opportunities to engage in life-changing personal development and community engagement activities.

This initiative is designed to provide high school students with a lasting source of inspiration and empowerment. We will be hosting smaller events throughout the year as an opportunity for ongoing engagement and empowerment.
