The Mississippi Youth Council (MYCouncil) is made up of 10 passionate youth activists from across Mississippi that support and promote high-quality comprehensive sex education for all young people. We work to ensure that young people have a voice in the debate around what gets taught in our schools.

The 2017-2018 MYCouncil application process is now closed (6/1/2017).

If you submitted an application by May 31, 2017, we will be conducting rolling interviews in-person until we have all 10 slots filled, whichever occurs first. If you have any questions about MYCouncil or about your submitted application, please contact Christopher Cox at christopher@teenhealthms.org or call 769-208-4060.
