The Fulton County Department of Community Development will honor Fulton County Youth Commissioners during the 2024 Service Awards Banquet at Loudermilk Conference Center located at 40 Courtland St NE, Atlanta, GA 30303 on Friday, May 17, 2024, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Fulton County Youth Commission (FCYC) is a leadership program for outstanding high school students in Fulton County, Georgia, whose primary purpose is to advocate for children and youth issues. Each year, approximately 30 students in grades 8th-11th join the Fulton County Youth Commission after a rigorous selection process. Youth Commissioners volunteer as many as 20 hours per month for planning meetings and community projects and over 120 hours annually. The FCYC explores various problems of today’s youth and voices recommendations to the Fulton County Board of Commissioners on the best possible solutions. In addition, the program strengthens the participant’s leadership skills, increases their interest in human services, and creates a means for communication between community leaders and Fulton County youth.

“The goal of the Youth Commission is to empower young people to be leaders and become involved in the local government process,” said Reginald Crossley, Fulton County Youth Commission. “The Service Awards Banquet is an opportunity to celebrate our young men and women for their dedicated service to the Fulton County Government and its citizens.”
