Do you know a young leader who is passionate about making a positive impact on their community? The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is looking for students in grades 8 through 11 interested in supporting disaster preparedness and making a difference in their communities to join the Youth Preparedness Council (YPC). Applicants not chosen for the national council will be considered for the regional council. During their term on the council, members will take on projects at both a local and national level working to develop/improve their leadership and project management skills.
This opportunity is open to students who are in the 8th through 11th grades. You can spread the word by sharing information about the YPC with parents, educators, schools, organizations, and reaching out to friends and family! Do you know a student who would make a great candidate? Encourage them to apply today! Applications must be submitted on the FEMA website no later than 11:59 p.m. PT on March 6.
