Do you know young people that want to build leadership and advocacy skills? Are you one? YouthLead is currently recruiting for its YouthLead In Focus Advisory Team (YIF). This is a great way to develop leadership, communication and advocacy skills and have ownership in programming designed for you. Rather than just participate, you will have the opportunity to build a program for you, by you.
Contact YouthLead at [email protected] for information. Put "Join YIF" in the subject line.
