Young Republicans represent a diverse group of young professionals and students who share a passion for Republican principles and conservative values and live in Charlotte County. Recognizing that they are the future of our Party and America, we have created a Program that allows this group to attend our Monthly Dinner Meetings and Mixers at no cost to them. This Program is entirely funded by the generosity of our members through our Youth Fund.

How to administer the CCRC Youth Program funds
The President, or designee, will oversee the Youth Fund. The emphasis is that local youth are the beneficiaries, not visiting friends or family members. Currently, Janice Cousino is the coordinator. Please direct any questions or suggestions to her.
The goal is to gain youth support in the Club and to mentor youths and young adults to continue as Republicans.
To be eligible for this program, the person must be a resident of Charlotte County between 16 and 25 years old. The coordinator has the discretion to waive these requirements on a case-by-case basis.
Any active member of the CCRC may request to invite a youth guest to be paid for through the Youth Fund at any CCRC event.
The inviting member will request use of the funds with a CCRC Board Member to ensure appropriate use of the funds prior to approval.
The inviting member will inform the Hospitality Chair of the number of youths approved to attend, date of the event and when appropriate, the meal selection.
The inviting member will host and introduce the youths at the event.
The Youth Fund will dispense $26.00 for a dinner meeting at the IYC and $10.00 for the Mixer.
This Program is not funded by the Club, but through donations we receive for this purpose. It will continue as long as there are funds available in the Youth Fund.
The coordinator may, from time to time, pause donations to the Youth Fund because of a substantial amount of money on hand.
