The Youth Council Model

Youth Council (YC) is a State Department initiative, and U.S. Embassies and Consulates around the world have established Youth Councils to include emerging young leaders as we address our shared challenges, and as an opportunity for youth to share their generation’s interests and priorities.

U.S. Embassy Budapest Youth Council

The current group of the Embassy’s Youth Council, consists of a diverse and non-partisan group of 16 active Hungarians, aged 16-26.  Their primary focus is to design and run youth-focused projects together, and also to advise the Embassy on youth-related issues. Their primary areas of interest include the environment and sustainability, digitalization and the workplace of the future, and addressing bullying and intolerance.

In the coming months, until August 2020, the group will be working on various initiatives connected to these topics, with the support and guidance of the Embassy. You can follow their work and future projects on the Embassy’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
