Youth Corps

The Youth Corps was established by Executive Order on August 17, 2020, and is open to anyone under the age of 23 who is interested in engaging with the county government.

The purpose of the Youth Corps is to connect with the County Executive’s Office, keep up-to-date with issues pertaining to youth in the county, and build a network of individuals committed to improving the county for everyone who lives here.
