Recruitment for Anthem Youth Advisory Council members is underway

ANTHEM – Launched in 2014 as an initiative of the Anthem Community Council (ACC) Board of Directors, the Anthem Youth Advisory Council (AYAC) invites youth entering grades 9-12 to serve their community, develop leadership skills and become a voice for Anthem’s younger population.

Now in its fifth year, the group of teens continues to evolve and bring new ideas to the table. Members of the youth council represent all Anthem schools and the home-school community.

Application packets are available at the Civic Building and Community Center and are posted online at OnlineAtAnthem.com/AYAC.

Interested youth must complete an application and submit responses to essay questions by May 3, at 5 p.m. Youth will then interview with a panel of advisors comprised of ACC Board members and staff, and community members, May 20-24.

New members will be seated at the June 26, ACC Board of Directors meeting. The group will meet twice during the summer for team-building activities before their first meeting September 11.
