The Youth Council provides youth who are already engaged in El Pueblo’s youth programs with a path for deeper engagement and leadership opportunities within the organization.

Youth Council members partner with adult staff to:

  1. Strengthen youth-led programming and organizing;

  2. Integrate youth into program development and daily operations within El Pueblo;

  3. Organize and facilitate intergenerational events;

  4. Increase youth involvement in El Pueblo’s governance; and

  5. Build youth and adult capacity to work together effectively.

In order to prepare youth to take active roles within El Pueblo and in their communities, one of the Youth Council’s primary responsibilities is to design, organize, and facilitate the Pueblo Power (Poder del Pueblo) Youth Leadership Program.
