Flickr PhotosYouth Leadership Council is an organization of teens in Oakland who are committed to improving Oakland's public libraries. We advise library staff, host special events and promote youth activism by projecting our voices to city council on important issues in Oakland. Through the library, we become more involved in our community, foster civic engagement and envision a better Oakland.
