Keep America Beautiful is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 National Youth Advisory Council which provides an opportunity for 10 high school students (15-18 years old) from diverse backgrounds to participate in a service learning and leadership development program.
The YAC members will provide an original point of view in assessing Keep America Beautiful programs, implement local service projects, and will act as ambassadors and leaders for youth service in their respective communities and states.
“Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful believes that our younger generation is the key to a cleaner more sustainable environment. I encourage Pennsylvania students to embrace this distinctive opportunity. The National Youth Advisory Council will provide a unique experience that can be transferred to other leadership opportunities in the future,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, the state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful.
Last year, Elena Prenovitz from Erie was named to the National Youth Advisory Council for a second year (second from right in photo).
The YAC is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Wrigley Company Foundation.
Applications will be accepted through May 5 11:00 p.m. EDT. Applications must be submitted online. Selected Council Members will attend the 2018 Keep America Beautiful National Conference.
