Do you want to work with FEMA officials throughout the year to complete national projects which make communities safer, better prepared, and more resilient? Do you want to have the chance to travel to Washington, DC, during the summer for an Annual Summit to hear from national preparedness leaders, meet FEMA officials, collaborate with other teens, participate in team building activities, and learn about project planning? FEMA’s national Youth Preparedness Council (YPC) seeks out young leaders who are interested in supporting disaster preparedness and making a difference in their communities by completing disaster preparedness projects nationally and locally.
Students in 8th—11th grade can apply to the YPC now through March 8th, 2020, to join other teens from across the country. Interested students should visit the website to apply. For more information on FEMA’s YPC, visit the YPC website.
