Boone County Youth Cabinet

Boone County Youth Cabinet is now Accepting Applications

The Boone County Youth Cabinet (BCYC) is a leadership program for students in their junior year of high school who reside in Boone County. Established by the Boone County Fiscal Court in 2002, the BCYC helps students develop in the areas of leadership and civic responsibility by offering youth perspectives to the Judge-Executive and Fiscal Court; encouraging students to become familiar with the legal and judicial process; engaging them in decision-making and service-learning; and offering youth opportunities to influence public policy.

BCYC begins with breakfast and team building in August and draws to a close in April. Approximately once a month, students are provided access to a variety of state and county officials, in order to learn from them, ask questions, and make suggestions. Members also participate in a service-learning project around the annual homeless census in January.

Applications for the 2018-2019 BCYC are available on the Boone County Human Services website: ( and are due by 4:30 PM on March 30, 2018. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter!
