Minnesota Youth Council Accepting Applications

Youth Alliance
The Minnesota Alliance with Youth is looking for youth-adult pairs from across the state of Minnesota to serve on the Minnesota Youth Council for the purpose of expanding the youth voice and to be a part of decision-making processes at the state and local level. The MYC uses a youth-adult partnership model, where youth and adults actively collaborate to lead the initiatives of the Council together. Each youth applicant should apply with an adult partner – for example, a youth worker, AmeriCorps Promise Fellow, teacher, family friend, etc.

Here is your chance to receive training on the legislative process, community organizing, outreach and social media, leadership, community asset mapping and youth-adult partnerships, and philanthropy. You wll also engage in dialogue with policymakers, elected officials and other community leaders and have opportunities to organize, lead and engage in events promoting youth voice.

Members will develop communication, leadership and research skills that may be reflected in future scholarship, college and job opportunities.

Applications are due May 10th by 6pm, and interviews will take place the weeks of May 13th and 20th!
