       Youth Shadow Local Council
Youth Local Councils (YLC) are youth bodies democratically elected by their peers to emulate the actual LGUs in their communities with the long term vision of emerging as future youth leaders. Through careful coaching, capacity building, and oversight, the YSLCs engage in different experiences that engage them in democratic processes, expose them to local governance, and demonstrate responsible citizenship and good governance practices. Currently implemented by Sharek Youth Forum, the program is an initiative started to be supported by Global Communities (Formerly CHF International) through the USAID-funded Local Democratic Reform Program Tawasol and now continues under the USAID-funded Local Government & Infrastructure program (LGI).
