2/27/2020 - FEMA Youth Preparedness Council Applications
FEMA created the Youth Preparedness Council (YPC) in 2012 to bring together young leaders who are interested in supporting disaster preparedness and making a difference in their communities by completing disaster preparedness projects nationally and locally. The YPC supports FEMA’s commitment to involve America’s youth in preparedness-related activities. Additionally, it provides FEMA the opportunity to engage young people and share their perspectives, feedback, and opinions.
YPC members meet with FEMA staff throughout their term to provide input on strategies, initiatives, and projects. YPC members also attend the annual YPC Summit in Washington, DC, meet regularly with FEMA representatives, and complete several emergency preparedness projects.
This year, YPC members are working on projects for financial preparedness, citizen responder programs, and youth preparedness education.
Applications are now being accepted and must be received by 11:59 pm on March 8th. For more information please click on the link provided.
