Youth Council -- Training our youth for tomorrow"

Youth Council

The Youth Council of the East St. Louis Branch of the NAACP was organized in 1948 to meet the need of youth involvement. Mrs. Mattie Boyce was the first supervisor and Miss Vivian Adams and Mr. Curtis Silvers were two of the members. Miss Adams and Mr. Silver were recognized as outstanding leaders among the youth and were sent to represent the council at a meeting in Peoria in 1948.
