Encircle is thrilled to invite you to apply for a position on its Youth Advisory Council (YAC). Encircle strives to engage and empower its YAC members to meet the issues that mean the most to them, to provide a young person’s perspective in larger Encircle projects and to provide resume-building opportunities that support the YAC members’ professional, personal, and academic goals.
Members of the council will provide an integral role in providing ideas, feedback, and advice that will help shape the programs and activities at Encircle. The YAC will be composed of 10-14 council members, approximately half of which are youth, ages of 14-18, and half of which are young adults, ages of 19-24. Each youth member will be paired with a young adult member, forming mentorship pairs. Membership on the council lasts 2 calendar years.
