The Youth development committee has divided into two distinct groups.

Energized Partnership is a sub-committee which has made significant gains to strengthen partnerships within the community.

The Youth Council is comprised of two of our community members in the Youth Committee, as well as youth who are enrolled in our local high school. Each member of the Youth Committee is nominated for the council by peers and faculty.

Our goal

In the next ten years is to nurture Mattoon’s young residents and encourage them to be actively involved in the community while offering them unique opportunities to explore who they are, develop their skills, and discover their passion.

Our vision
