America’s Promise Alliance Impact Network: 2012 Leadership Opportunities


http://www.americaspromise.org/Our-Work/Youth-Engagement/Impact-Network/Youth-Leadership/Leadership-Opportunities.aspx


America’s Promise Alliance promotes youth engagement as part of our Grad Nation campaign by encouraging and supporting our networks and partners to involve young people in community change, and sharing local stories of youth-led action with a national audience to build broader support.  The Impact Network is the umbrella of all opportunities available to encourage 13-25 year olds to engage in the mission of America's Promise Alliance. Below you will find two types of opportunities and four different roles available this July. Be sure to read eligibility and requirements for each. Applicants may apply for one or all of the positions on the same form. To see past participants view some of their youth insight posts.

Applications must be received by July 2, 2012.



Leadership Bodies


America’s Promise models youth involvement by having two youth leaders on both our Board of Directors and Alliance Trustees. Each youth is a full voting member of the leadership body and plays a valuable role in the strategic direction of the organization. Meet our current members.

Board of Directors - 2 year term (September 2012 – June 2014)
Our Board , which represents leaders from all sectors of America, provides leadership and oversight for the management of the organization.

Alliance Trustees - 2 year term (September 2012 – June 2014)
As leaders of key partner organizations in the America’s Promise Alliance, our Trustees help shape the Alliance’s priorities and initiatives. They serve in an advisory capacity to our Board of Directors.

Judging


In addition, we feel that young people should have a voice in all strategies of our work. Through competitions such as 100 Best Communities for Young People and the Journalism Awards, America’s Promise shines a spotlight on communities making a difference and the struggle to build a Grad Nation.  Youth judges will join expert panelist in determining winners of these special awards.

100 Best Communities for Young People Judge - 1 time opportunity (July 2012)
The 100 Best Communities for Young People presented by ING is a signature initiative of America’s Promise Alliance and an important part of the Grad Nation campaign. Each year, America's Promise and ING celebrate 100 deserving communities who effectively provide their youth with the Five Promises and work to increase graduation rates. Winning communities come from all across the country and are addressing the unique challenges they face.

Journalism Awards Judge - 1 time opportunity (Fall 2012)
These awards, created in partnership with the Journalism Center on Children & Families, recognize the efforts of journalists working to raise awareness about the needs of young people and those that inspire communities to act on behalf of youth.
