The Idaho Meth Project is accepting applications for high school students to help advise its community programs.
According to a Wednesday press release, the organization will select 12 to 15 incoming sophomores and juniors to serve for one year each on its Teen Advisory Council. Students from both public and private schools are eligible.
Council members encourage student volunteer and outreach efforts focused on the dangers of methamphetamine.
They'll be required to advise and consult with Idaho Meth Project staff, help plan and initiate community and school events, and participate in monthly conference calls. They will be involved in a wide variety of community activities, including recruiting teen volunteers to staff booths at local events, organizing public education activities at their own schools, and interacting with their peers via Facebook and other social media efforts.
Project staff require the following from applicants: to have an email address for group communications, to be willing to check that email regularly and to attend the Teen Advisory Council Leadership Symposium on June 21-22 in Boise. Students must have the consent of their parents to join the council.
To apply, complete the application at http://www.idaho.methproject.org/Get-Involved/teen-council.php and submit it with a letter of reference to email@example.com or P.O. Box 738, Boise, ID 83701. Applications are due by midnight May 3.
