The Cary Teen Council is a volunteer service organization made up of fun and fascinating teens from a variety of schools in Cary and surrounding areas! The mission of the Cary Teen Council is to empower teens with the core values of leadership, accountability and a heart for service. The Cary Teen Council accomplishes these goals by providing volunteer opportunities, leadership opportunities, establishing high standards for behavior and promoting teens to effectively communicate while managing their time and volunteer profiles. Teens participating in the council have the opportunity to get involved in programs and events that focus on social/recreational, community awareness and service, educational, leadership/teamwork and fundraising.
The group has been honored with a multitude of awards including:
- Voluntary service award by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) in 2010
- Jefferson Award for Public Service in 2013
- North Carolina's Most Outstanding Council in 2009, 2013 and 2017
- North Carolina's largest and most diverse council since 2006
The council meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (except June & July) at the Herbert C. Young Community Center in Cary from 6:45-7:45pm for members. For more information regarding the council and new member registration, please contact Doug Peters at email@example.com or by calling 919-460-4965.
