Originating in 2019, the council began under the lead of Canton’s Mayor Bill Grant. Seeking input and insight on what teens wanted in Canton, the new group was formed. This year, Cherokee High School sophomores Sophia Melbourne, Laney Cline, and Mackenzie Rodriguez have picked up the pace and are actively seeking new recruits.

Now is the time for Canton’s youth to make a difference! CanTeen plans to offer community events that prioritize:

  • Engagement

  • Leadership
  • Support
  • and Fun!

CanTeen Council is excited to meet new faces and create an inclusive environment for Canton’s teen citizens. Stop by this Friday to sign up and get involved.
