FEMA Region III Seeks Youth Leaders for National Youth Preparedness Council
Date: February 26, 2018
News Desk: (215) 931-5597
PHILADELPHIA – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is seeking applicants for the Youth Preparedness Council, which brings together teenagers from across the country who are interested and engaged in community preparedness. Council members are selected based on their dedication to public service, their efforts in making a difference in their communities, and their potential to expand their impact as national leaders for preparedness. Students in 8th through 11th grade are eligible to apply.
The Youth Preparedness Council, formed in 2012, offers an opportunity for youth leaders to serve on a distinguished national council and participate in the Youth Preparedness Council Summit in Washington, D.C. During their two-year term, the leaders will complete both a local and national-level project and share their ideas regarding youth disaster preparedness with FEMA leadership and national organizations. “The Youth Preparedness Council provides an opportunity for FEMA to partner with enterprising students across the nation to make a difference in their communities,” stated FEMA Region III Regional Administrator MaryAnn Tierney. “Participants are able to gain experience and develop skills in service to their communities, and FEMA is able to continue building a culture of preparedness through this strategic opportunity.” In past years, members of the Youth Preparedness Council have engaged with the Girl Scouts, worked with the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, and presented at local, state, and national conferences on their ideas and efforts to improve their communities.
Youth interested in applying to the Council must submit a completed application form, provide two letters of recommendation, and academic records. All applications and supporting materials must be received no later than March 19th, 2018, 02:59 a.m. EST in order to be eligible. New council members will be announced in May 2018.
To access the application materials, read about the current Council members, and for more general information about the Youth Preparedness Council, visit www.ready.gov/youth-preparedness-council.
