The Mississippi Youth Council (MYCouncil) is made up of 10 passionate youth activists from across Mississippi who 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.

“I get to participate in lobbying. We get to participate in advocacy trainings. We get to participate in networking. We go to the capitol and talk to all of the senators and legislators. And it means a lot to me because I get to be a voice for those who can’t speak on the sexual health that we need in Mississippi.”Kimberly Davis, 2018-2020 MYCouncil member

MYCouncil Goals

  • Raise awareness among youth about the need for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and pregnancy prevention efforts for themselves and other young people in Mississippi.
  • Advocate for comprehensive sex education in Mississippi public schools and other policy priorities.
  • Empower other youth to get involved in their communities.
