The Cleveland Branch NAACP Youth Council was established to give youth a voice in their community, a platform to express ideals and concerns, as well as solutions to the problems many of us face.  The mission of the NAACP Youth and College Division is to develop an intelligent and effective youth leadership to ensure the political, educational, financial, and social equality of rights for people of color through training, organization, and mobilization.  The Youth Council is actively involved in voter registration, membership recruitment, fundraising, and community education.
