NC Council For Women & Youth Involvement
The Department of Administration has been the premiere advocate for youth-related issues in North Carolina state government. To increase efficiency, this year’s budget rolled the Youth Advocacy & Involvement Office into the Council for Women. Gale McKoy Wilkins, the Council’s Director, will oversee operations for SADD, the North Carolina Internship Program and State Youth Councils which were formerly under the Youth Advocacy umbrella.
“The NC Council for Women is dedicated to bettering the lives of women and families in North Carolina and we are excited to offer these youth-related programs. I believe this to be a well-rounded approach to accomplishing our mission and truly expect great things to come,” said Director Gale McKoy Wilkins, NC Council for Women.
DOA is proud to continue to host these excellent programs which are dedicated to mentoring and encouraging positive life-skills in tomorrow’s generation of North Carolina citizens.
