Red Cross Mile High Youth Advisory Board Seeking Applicants - Deadline May 31, 2017

2016-2017 Mile High Youth Advisory Board
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Everybody can be great because everybody can serve." The great thing about this statement is it doesn't say "if you're old enough" or "if you're young enough"...it says EVERYBODY. 

Here in the Mile High area we are calling all students with a passion for community service, taking initiative in their leadership positions, and enthusiasm for working with others to produce a positive means of changing their community.

The American Red Cross Mile High Youth Advisory Board is looking for rising freshmen and sophomores. As a part of the American Red Cross, accepted applicants will be a part of one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world at the highest level in Colorado AND Wyoming. 

Accepted applicants will oversee Red Cross youth activities across the Colorado-Wyoming region, working closely with regional headquarters in Denver. Students will have opportunities to gain professional development, leadership, project planning and facilitation skills. Accepted applicants will be able to work with a wide range of Red Cross personnel, planning activities for fellow youth volunteers, and leading in non-profit setting. Thinking of college? Seeing the American Red Cross name on any application will greatly boost one's chances of being accepted and receiving scholarships!

Accepted applicants must commit to monthly meetings at Mile High Area Regional Headquarters in Denver (444 Sherman St, Denver, CO 80203), be it by virtual or in-person means. Prospective applicants must also commit to continuous correspondence with other board members through group messaging, conference calls, and/or email between meetings.
