Find your inner power by helping others

We develop young civil rights and community leaders by engaging youth in leadership roles and positive community activism in Howard County, Maryland. We have won numerous awards and recognition from county and state officials for our work. Though we primarily focus on the issues affecting African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities, we strive for equality for all people and do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or any other protected category. We welcome you to learn more about the Howard County National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Youth Council.

Join us every 3rd Thursday at Ridgely's Run Community Center
8400 Mission Road, Jessup MD, from 6pm-7pm.
