Team Youth leaders
Become a youth volunteer leader
National Youth Council
The National Youth Council is a committee of 19 college students who have been selected because of their demonstrated leadership ability and their potential for service to the March of Dimes Foundation. The purpose of the National Youth Council is to assist the March of Dimes in the design and implementation of programs targeted to young people.
Chain Reaction & Collegiate Council
Chain Reactions (high school) and Collegiate Councils (college) are student groups that exist to conduct year-round activities to support the March of Dimes mission. These groups provide young people with meaningful learning experiences while building the volunteer force that will help the March of Dimes accomplish its goals today and lead the Foundation into the future.
