The YouthCity Government (YCG) program is an opportunity for high school students in Salt Lake City to make a difference in their community. Founded in 1994, YCG prepares students to think critically and to learn the importance of civic engagement and community involvement. YCG participants are trained to identify and address issues facing Salt Lake City.
Jan. 18-29: Fight Hunger with the YouthCity Government Virtual Food Drive for the Utah Food Bank: "Each year, in commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dedication to service, YouthCity Government (YCG) on behalf of the Salt Lake City Mayor's Office organizes the City's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Project. For over 19 years, YCG students, city officials, city employees, and community partners have sorted food donations and distribute food boxes to Salt Lake City's low-income seniors and people with disabilities. Due to the pandemic and to ensure we follow social distancing guidelines, YCG students will host an MLK Virtual Food Drive, Monday, January 18 - January 29, 2021. We look forward to your support and helping us meet our goal!"
