Team Kids Youth Council
What is the Youth Council?
The Team Kids Youth Council, or TKYC, is a highly dedicated group of 30+ young people between the ages of 12-18, who pledge to spend an entire year filling active community leadership roles, researching social issues, taking action to impact problems, and creating youth-driven service projects.
Last year, this group of 30 kids completed over 1,200 hours of active service. That’s without counting meetings or fundraisers! Lead by their own Youth Board of Directors, they meet twice a month to discuss problems that our community faces and design service projects to make a difference and spark conversation in the community.

TKYC Serv-A-Thon 2015: A Summer of Service
If you had a group of dedicated young people, a bus, and the funds to go up and down the state of California, could you change the way people see our nation’s youth?
Absolutely Yes! The TKYC won’t stop until we knock out hunger, homelessness, and the destruction of our environment. We will do everything we can to serve our inspiring Wounded Warriors, our amazing inner-city communities, and our life-changing educators!
This summer the TKYC embarked on their 5th annual Serv-a-Thon around San Diego County from August 1-4th, and now it’s time to start planning for the 2016 Serv-a-thon across the United States! The Youth Council is fundraising in order to make their summer of service happen. Some expenses of the Serv-a-Thon include lodging, food and transportation for 30+ teens going on the trip in addition to direct costs of the service projects themselves.
