08/21/2015 02:28PM, Published by Aubray Onderik, Categories: CV Family



Fayetteville native, Crystal Glover, serves as the advisor to the Fayetteville-Cumberland County Youth Council (FCYC) which was re-established in November of 2014. The Youth Council’s mission is to be a voice for our local youth in this youth-led organization. Their focus is sold on the community. According to Glover, “FCYC serves as a cross-generational link and participates in service projects and social events to promote character building and leadership development. The organization’s name embodies the partnership between the City of Fayetteville and Cumberland County.”

 

CityView Family sat down with Glover to learn more.

 

1) How many students are on the Youth Council?

We have 120 participants.

 

2) What is the criteria to join? How does a student join the Youth Council?

Youth council members are exceptional high schoolers appointed by their principals.

 

3) How often does the Youth Council meet and what is discussed at the meetings?

The entire council meets twice a month with one of the meetings being a Work Session for the different youth committees to plan and discuss upcoming events. We also organize service projects and social events to encourage each individual to develop their leadership skills as well as build their character to add to their life skills.

 

4) What is the Youth Council up to this year?

FCYC has a lot of great things planned for this coming year! Our most exciting event will be on September 12, 2015. Our community will be home to its first ever “Fayetteville Cumberland Glow Fest: a run for the change” hosted by the Fayetteville-Cumberland Youth Council. FCYC urges everyone to “Be the Change” in their community regarding the issue of bullying, however the initiative can be applied to a wide array of social issues. By participating in and promoting the Glow Fest affirms your support of the youth of your community and the change they work toward every day.
