Monroe County Youth Council

Who We Are

The Monroe County Youth Council (MCYC) is a youth-run organization established in 2011 in order to:“Improve the quality of life of youth in Monroe County, Indiana.”

What We Do

THE MONROE COUNTY YOUTH COUNCIL (MCYC) was created in 2011 through a collaboration of local youth-serving agencies and the Asset Building Coalition. MCYC consists of 40 high school students from public and private schools in Monroe County who meet once a month (Aug-May).

The Monroe County Youth Council partners with and serves various community organizations. MCYC promotes and recognizes youth in action in the community and fosters volunteer service opportunities for and by youth.

For the past five years, it has organized Bloomington’s celebration of the youth-led worldwide event Global Youth Service Day

MCYC is committed to service and leadership; the structure and focus of MCYC shifts every school year based on the teen leadership team’s vision and goals for the next school year.  MCYC is youth-driven and led, with support from and in collaboration with adult allies. 

* MCYC is a sub-committee of the Asset Building Coalition and hosted by the Youth Services Bureau of Monroe County, City of Bloomington through the City of Bloomington Volunteer Network, and the Monroe County Public Library. MCYC members (youth) and the MCYC Advisory Team (adults) collaborate on MCYC goals and objectives; MCYC members inform the direction and activities of MCYC while being supported by these involved adults.

ABC provides structural support for a variety of youth serving activities in Monroe County Indiana. These services include the functions of the Bloomington Afterschool Network, NET Prevent Child Abuse, Youth Worker Café, Building a Thriving Compassionate Community Bloomington, and the Monroe County Youth Council.
