Youth Advisory Board

The Youth Advisory Board will be formed by a leadership group of ten youth, ages 14-17, who will advise TCC’s youth programming and take active leadership roles in the community. The Youth Advisory Board runs from September 2024 to May 2025, and 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 impact the community while also building your resume for future career opportunities. The stipend for members of the Youth Advisory Board is $500 for the year.

Youth will have the option of learning about, advising, 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” 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.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2024-2025 school year.

Check out the instructions and application below!
