Youth Want Action, Support, and Purposeful Change.

The Challenge is Great, but the Energy of Today's Youth is Even Greater.

Today's youth are facing more complex challenges that are being compounded by societal and environmental factors day after day. The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with pressures from school and their social lives, have led to heightened psychological distress and strained mental health. The number of children in Georgia who visited emergency rooms for reasons related to suicide nearly tripled between 2008 and 2021.

 

However, those same young people understand that their voices and actions have power. There's hunger to fulfill a purpose bigger than themselves and they want to see real world changes.

 

The youth of today feel that they are the ones that must make this tangible and reliable shift happen. The question now is how can we support them.

LCYC Believes in Equipping Youth
with Integrity

Although the obstacles youth face in carving out a better future are layered, one approach can be proven to help create a better future filled with virtue and respectability: leadership character development.

 

This is why the Leadership Character Youth Coalition (LCYC) exists. We believe in equipping youth ages 12-22 with the ability to confidently make choices rooted in integrity so that they can positively lead tomorrow with character.

We aggregate, create and provide research-based, age-specific leadership development tools, content and expert consulting to youth-engaging organizations.
