We are writing to let you know of an opportunity for students ages 16-22 to serve on the 2021-2022 UServeUtah Youth Council. Selected youth council members will serve from September of 2021 through July of 2022.
The UServeUtah Youth Council is a youth-led advisory council that advocates for youth engagement in volunteerism, plans impactful projects in the community, and works with our commission to inform statewide public policy. Youth council members attend monthly meetings (currently held virtually), and upon successful completion of their service, they will receive a certificate and letter of completion from the Lt. Governor to help them gain employment or admission to higher education.
This is a great opportunity for civically-minded students to network with a wide range of professionals and other students from across the state, and a great addition to a resume or to a graduate school/future higher education application.
Each youth council member leads a community engagement project for a cause they are passionate about, with the support of UServeUtah staff. Past projects include environmental/recycling initiatives, the creation of a community garden, recruitment of volunteers for local nonprofits, serving refugees in the community, and more!
We are accepting applications now through April 19th. Interested students can apply here. Please feel free to share this opportunity with any students who may be interested in participating, and please reach out to Wendy Carrigan, [email protected],
with any questions.
