Youth Leadership Council
The YOUTH LEADERSHIP COUNCIL is a youth-driven advisory board for Oakland Public Library. Together, we help the library improve its service to young people, and promote library access and enjoyment among our city's diverse residents.
Why join? YLC members (ages 13-18) gain communication and public speaking skills, self-confidence, leadership experience, ins and outs of event planning, and friends! Directly interact with high level community leaders and participate in local and national functions. Eat! And much more. Check out some of the fun on Flickr.
How to Join
First, drop into one of our monthly meetings: Every 3rd Saturday, 11am-1pm in the Main Library TeenZone, 125 14th Street, 2nd Floor, South Study Room.
