Youth Civic Engagement

In Hampton, we have a variety of volunteer opportunities for youth at all levels of engagement for youth including: shared leadership, advisory & consultation and involvement.

The old adage that “young people are the leaders of the future” does not right true in Hampton, Virginia. In Hampton, young people are leaders, decision-makers and contributors in our community TODAY.

Everywhere you go in Hampton, young people are working to improve their neighborhoods, schools, community programs and even city government. Hampton channels the passion and volunteer spirit of youth into a broad range of civic opportunities with a formal role in governance and meaningful chance to make a difference.
