Congressional Youth Cabinet

Congresswoman Scanlon’s Congressional Youth Cabinet will provide young adults in Pennsylvania’s 5th district with an opportunity to influence the policymaking process and better understand how Congress works. The goal of the Congressional Youth Cabinet is to foster a lifetime commitment to civic engagement and public service.


The Congressional Youth Cabinet (CYC) is a nonpartisan initiative open to sophomores and juniors in high school. This program will expose students to the importance of youth advocacy in America, the legislative process, and ways that citizens can serve as effective agents for positive change. Members of the CYC will also have the opportunity to provide Congresswoman Scanlon with their own ideas about solving pressing issues facing young Americans.


This organization will provide student members with a unique opportunity to connect with other elected officials, peers, and community leaders. Through this new partnership with Congresswoman Scanlon, young Pennsylvanians will gain a solid understanding of how they can make a positive difference in the lives of children, youth, and families in their communities and their country.
