The Statewide Steering Committee for Youth Leadership in Building Health Communities provides youth with opportunities to develop new skills, express their opinions and to take action! We believe that youth have powerful ideas, that they are capable of speaking for themselves, and that their involvement will accelerate progress to a better future. We are seeking one youth from the 7 communities listed above, aged 16-24, to serve on the BHC Statewide Steering Committee for Youth Leadership.

Communities involved in the BHC initiative statewide are charged with engaging youth in their work to improve the health of residents by creating healthier neighborhoods. In addition to the local work, efforts are emerging to engage youth in regional and statewide policy work and to create learning communities to support youth and adults as they work together in this exciting initiative. The Statewide Steering Committee guides and supports these statewide efforts.

Applicants must have passion for improving our future that is reflected in your written statement. Applicants must be familiar with and have connections to the BHC work happening in their community. Prior leadership experience is a plus but not required. You must pledge to make this project a priority for a 2-3 year term and make sure that you can fulfill your academic and family responsibilities at the same time.
