Manhattan Beach Youth Council

Manhattan Beach Youth Council


Congratulations and welcome Class of 2021-22. We are getting very excited about the eight workshops we will be offering this year. Please mark your calendar with the dates below, if you haven’t already.

Note that dates of some of the workshops changed because of facility availability. Our goal is to hold as many workshops in person as possible, but we will continue to follow county guidelines.

Starting in 2020 we began partnering with MBX as one of their many successful youth programs. Our new name is “Manhattan Beach Youth Council”. We continue to bring the same dynamic speakers to our workshops who talk about a variety of careers and professions in our ever changing world. Our goal is to inspire students to pursue their interests as they consider their futures. We accept high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors that either live or attend school in Manhattan Beach. This is a one year program.

Please contact either of our co-chairs, Betsey Keely at betseygkeely[email protected] or Phil Wah at [email protected] with further questions.

Once again, congratulations on behalf of all the MBYC volunteers! We look forward to seeing you either virtually or in person in September.

The Manhattan Beach Youth Council Mission:

  • Engage students with leaders in private, public and philanthropic career arenas;
  • Share the wisdom, ways and diversity of leadership;
  • Stimulate and feed curiosity and creativity; and
  • Cultivate interest in civic stewardship.
