At the center of empowering change makers

Youth Advisory Board

The Youth Advisory Board will be formed by a leadership group of eight youth, ages 14-17, who will design the future of TCC youth programming and future Youth Advisory Boards. Eligible youth leaders will be invited to participate for more than one year. Members will play an integral role in creating peer resources and will be instrumental in building and retaining a community of committed youth leaders who further the TCC mission. 

A position on the Youth Advisory Board provides helpful leadership experience to put on a resume for future career opportunities. It also provides a stipend of $300.

Youth will have the option of learning about and actively participating in the creation of a variety of program areas at The Conflict Center including “Hot-Spot Mapping,” “Building Healthy Relationships – A Social Norming Model,” “Rethinking Conflict” for youth and more! Additional assignments are also available in the areas of outreach, evaluation, event planning, and communication and marketing.

Youth who apply will be interviewed for a position and notified of their status. Members are also expected to “walk the talk” of The Conflict Center, utilizing the skills we teach to communicate directly, use creative problem-solving skills and help build a healthy and supportive work environment.

The Youth Advisory Board is full for 2023, but be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be notified as soon as the application for the 2024 Youth Advisory Board is available!
