FEMA Youth Preparedness Council info session
February 17, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The diverse and distinguished council was created in 2012 to bring together youth leaders interested in supporting disaster preparedness and making a difference in their communities. During their one-year term on the virtual council, members meet peers from across the country, build leadership skills and serve their schools and communities. Members also have the unique opportunity to participate in an annual summit, and share their perspectives, feedback and opinions directly with FEMA leaders and staff.
This opportunity is open for students in grades 8 through 11. Members are chosen based on their passion for preparedness and helping others, their involvement in their community and their ability to work in a team and as a leader. All applications are due no later than 11:59 p.m. PT on March 6.
FEMA will host an applicant information session on Feb. 17 for those interested in learning more about the council and the application process.
