We need your help to spread the word to young people in your Neighborhood Council! This opportunity is great for current and prospective youth representatives, with acceptance preference given to youth already engaged in their Neighborhood Council. However, any interested Angeleno ages 14-17 are encouraged to apply!
Applications are due Monday December 18th at 11:59pm. We have developed an outreach toolkit to make it easy for you to share this opportunity on your Neighborhood Council's social media, website, and/or newsletter. The toolkit will be continuously updated between now and the application deadline with new graphics and translated materials, so check back often!
