Lawrence Youth Council

The Lawrence Youth Council (LYC) was created under the City of Lawrence Mayor’s Health Task Force (MHTF) with awareness-raising and activism as some of its core elements, carried out through the lens of social justice and health equity, in line with the MHTF. LYC members are charged with representing youth in the city of Lawrence, creating opportunities to give youth a voice, advocating for issues important to youth, and organizing and developing youth-related projects, programs, events and activities. Through a contract with the city, Elevated Thought has coordinated the LYC for the past three years.

Youth Empowerment Programming

Our Elevated Thought youth programming encourages students to examine societal issues, specifically the ones they see in and around their community, and pushes them to explore new ideas and creative solutions to social issues through discussion and debate, poetry, and various visual art mediums. History, philosophy, critical thinking, collaboration, public outreach, and organizing are all elements of the program. We believe that exposure and access to this type of learning can empower our students to lead and organize for systematic equality in education, their cities, and beyond. Limited seats available.
