Remember being an ambitious teenager and looking for cool service opportunities?
If your teenager (ages 12-17) has any interest in emergencies or disaster relief, the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) is looking for nominations to the National Youth Advisory Council.
Youth Preparedness Council nominees will represent a variety of kids: current or former students, a youth member of a local Citizen Corps Council, a youth club, or a member of a faith-based organization who is vocal and active in preparing peers, family, and neighborhood for potential emergencies.
Nominations must be received by April 6, 11:59 p.m. EDT.
Complete Nomination Instructions are located at: http://citizencorps.gov/getstarted/youth/youthindex.shtm
FEMA’s Youth Preparedness Council is a unique opportunity for a select set of youth leaders to serve on a highly distinguished national council, to participate in a community preparedness roundtable event in Washington D.C., and to voice their opinions, experiences, ideas, solutions, and questions on youth disaster preparedness with the leadership of national organizations working on youth preparedness.
