The Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Illinois Teen Council is a group of high-school age students who have come together to encourage support and awareness of the charity. Through the Teen Council year, students strengthen and develop skills in leadership, teamwork, responsibility, and communication, while supporting the mission of the House to serve children and families.

If you know a high school student that would like to become involved with Teen Council, the next application process will open in August 2020. For more information, contact Kendyl Wear at
