We’re Recruiting Youth Action Council Members!
Who Are We Recruiting?
Youth (male and female) between the ages of 14-21 years old who lives in the Long Island and New York City Tri-State area.
We recruit members with leadership and service experience as it makes for a strong team, but we also look for council members with diverse knowledge and that’s eager to learn and get involved in their community. While experience is a great asset, we try not to focus entirely on having a council full of your typical all-stars who are already involved in a multitude of leadership opportunities. The council is an opportunity for youth who haven’t had an opportunity or much experience to adopt a new enthusiasm for service and to develop leadership skills. In this way, we also choose “novice” members who show great enthusiasm and as-of-yet untapped potential.
