Youth Voices Needed

Youth Council Interest Meeting

Canopy Children’s Solutions Administrative Office
1465 Lakeland Drive, Jackson, MS

Canopy Children’s Solutions is seeking youth leaders to be a part of a youth council. The Canopy Youth Council aims to reduce the stigma around mental illness, change the conversation about mental health and open communication about issues that matter to youth. The Canopy Youth Council will be made up of youth in grades 9 to 12 from Hinds, Madison and Rankin Counties.

Youth council members will:

  • participate in service projects and events to promote character building and leadership development
  • advocate on behalf of youth suffering from depression, anxiety, drug dependency, ADHD, and other issues
  • engage your school and community with mental wellness campaigns
  • participate in public events to promote mental wellness and inspire other youth
