FEMA is seeking applicants for its Youth Preparedness Council. The council is an opportunity for youth leaders to serve on a national council and participate in the Youth Preparedness Council Summit in Washington, D.C.

The Youth Preparedness Council members will also complete a youth preparedness project of their choosing while learning about youth disaster preparedness from FEMA leadership and other national organizations.

During their two-year term, council members will complete a national-level group project and share their opinions, experiences, ideas, solutions, and questions with FEMA and other preparedness organizations.

Students in eighth through 11th grade are eligible to apply. Youth interested in applying to the council must submit a completed application form, two letters of recommendation, and their academic records.

All applications and supporting materials must be received no later than 8:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, March 8.
