The Business Pathways subcommittee created a new way for local companies to reach out to students with opportunities for work and volunteering.

Trip to D.C.

Every year, CYC represents Cambridge at the National League of Cities Conference in Washington D.C. We travel with the Mayor, members of the City Council, and City staff. During our trip, we share our work with other youth councils from across the country, learning from them about their issues, too. We also get to sight see and meet people working in politics in DC.
