know a teen who has a passion for preparedness? FEMA is accepting
applications for its 2021 Youth Preparedness Council (YPC).
Since 2012, FEMA has brought youth from across the Nation together.
Each year, teens apply to the YPC for an opportunity to join FEMA in
encouraging emergency preparedness. Teens serve on the YPC for two
of the YPC, members can build leadership skills and represent their
schools and communities. They also share their perspectives,
feedback, and opinions with FEMA. The YPC gives youth the chance to
meet peers from across the country and work on projects, such as
preparedness fairs for their communities. A virtual summit in July
gives members a chance to meet each other and hear from FEMA experts.
application period is open to teens in grades 8-11 until March 7,
2021. Learn more on Ready Kids and apply here!
