Business Sponsorship

The State Youth Council is creating a coalition of young leaders from across the state to start a movement of young people involved in the decision making of state government, local government, and community-based organizations to create better futures for our youth.

We need your business's help to support our young leaders! Our youth advocates have been at the forefront of many critical system changes to improve the lives of youth in workforce development programs. Please consider sponsoring our inspiring young leaders and help them continue their excellent work. We will make sure to get your name in front of hundreds of partners as a supporter of this important mission.
