Congressional Youth Cabinet

In 2019, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon launched the Congressional Youth Cabinet (CYC), a nonpartisan initiative to provide high school students in Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District with an opportunity to learn more about Congress and the policymaking process. Members of the CYC get to share their ideas about solving pressing issues facing young Americans, and will also have the opportunity to connect with other elected officials, peers, and community leaders.
