    The DuPage County National Association for The Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Youth Council (Unit 3758) was started in 1974 by Wheaton, IL residents Mr. and Mrs. Odom. During their tenure, the Youth Council expanded to serve Kane, Kendall, and Will Counties.

    The Youth Council is comprised of a youth-led elected executive team and youth members from 6th-12th grade. The youth elects an adult Advisor to facilitate and guide them during their monthly meetings.

    Our mission and goals are to create forums and events to promote activism, to provide youth with personal and civic leadership training, to promote nonpartisan political and community activism, and to gain exposure to public awareness for positive engagement.

    We meet every 2nd Sunday of the month at 4:15pm at New Horizon Christian Fellowship Church, located at 3577 E. New York St in Aurora, IL, 60504. Currently, all meetings are virtual via Zoom.

    Most of the Youth Council communication is through GroupMe, a mobile messaging app. We post community service events, seminars, internships and scholarships, among other things. 

    Also, follow us on social media! You can find the Youth Council on Instagram (@naacpdupageyc), GroupMe(@ Dupage County NAACP YC) , and Facebook (@NAACP DuPage County Youth Council).

    If your son and/or daughter is interested in participating, please email:

    We look forward to meeting you soon! Thank you.

    Hello Parents!

    Remember that all our children are winners whether they medal or not!  The job of Gift 2 Geniuses is to make sure that no child is left behind by providing an ACT-SO logo bag stuffed with items that will delight your sons/daughters.  Items include school supplies, toiletries, gift cards, cosmetics, snacks, etc.  All the items are assembled prior and handed to all participants at the banquet.  We rely on parents to help make this happen; either by donating, soliciting for donations and helping assemble gift bags.

    Gift 2 Geniuses believes all students that persevere to the end are all champions.

    Thank you parents!
