After the Danville Youth Council’s largely successful “Treats for Troops” candy drive, where they received more than 400 pounds of candy, the council now hopes to tackle the “Care Kits for Kids” project, which aims to help those who are homeless or foster children.


The council is made up of middle and high school students whose mission is to provide students and teens of Danville a chance to represent their school and community and improve the town. Once a month, students from San Ramon Valley High School, Monte Vista High School, California High School, Dougherty Valley High School, De La Salle/Carondelet, Diablo Vista Middle School, Charlotte Wood Middle School, Los Cerros Middle School, and Stone Valley Middle School gather to discuss different topics regarding teens.


In past years, the council has completed numerous projects that benefited Danville. Most notably, the “Stronger Than Hate” art showcase was a huge success. The art showcase encouraged students to display art depicting equality and inclusion as a way to overcome hate in our community.
