Saturday Special: The Signal Highlights Central Youth Leadership Council

January 20, 2024

MyCom celebrates a feature focusing on the Central Youth Council, a peer-to-peer leadership group facilitated by Jerry Rugley, MyCom Youth Coordinator for the Central Neighborhood. Signal Cleveland’s Najee Hall spent time learning about the group, observed a group meeting, and interviewed Jerry and participating youths. In Friday’s article, he wrote about challenges impacting the lives of our young people in their schools and communities and actions the Central Youth Council is taking to develop solutions.

  • “MyCom Youth Development Initiative aims to engage via education, such amazing out-of-school opportunities as they recognize that youth who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected from school."
    Curtis Benjamin
  • "MyCom has extended hundreds of youth exceptional opportunities to grow, expand their knowledge and express their voice in so many ways. I can honestly say that the youth are not the only ones who are learning, growing and having wonderful exposure opportunities. This adult is a beneficiary of countless blessing as well."
    Brenda Pryor
    MyCom Coordinator
  • "It was amazing, and really made me think of my community more, and how I can change it"
