​Youth Coalition

​Summit County believes in the power and impact that having young people at the table has in our community. The CTC youth coalition members join the conversations and work being done in each workgroup and provide an integral voice in this process. Students may join this process and remain involved for as long as they wish. Volunteer hours as well as stipend reimbursement is given to coalition members.
