FEMA LOOKING FOR YOUTHS


The Federal Emergency Management Agency is looking for students interested in community preparedness to apply to serve on the Youth Preparedness Council.


Our friends at the Methow Valley News report that council members are selected based on their dedication to public service, their efforts in making a difference in their communities, and their potential to have an impact as national leaders for emergency preparedness. They serve a one-year term.


The council is seeking youths in grades 8 through 11 who have participated in community activities, lived through a disaster, or participated in a preparedness activity or training.


Council members work together to develop projects that promote preparedness on a local, regional and national scale. They also work with leaders within FEMA, the federal government, and nonprofit organizations.


There are no costs associated with serving on the council, but also no compensation or stipend.


More information and applications are available by emailing FEMA-Prepare@fema.dhs.gov. The deadline to apply is March 4.
