The purpose of the Youth Council is to train youth to meet the challenges
in their communities. It enables young people who aspire to lead to learn skills sets that are common traits in effective
leadership. Youth Council members will learn to assess their strengths and weaknesses, review models of leadership, develop
strategic plans, collect and analyze data, set goals, communicate effectively to build networks and then apply these skills
to create successful lives for themselves and/or impact community change.
The Bucks County Links Youth Council adheres to five pillars. Each
of the five pillars is viewed as both the foundation as well as the catalyst for leadership: Below is the list of Pillars.
