Youth Council

Youth Council is a year-long leadership development internship. Youth Councilors hone personal and professional skills through attending workshops, planning events, representing Enterprise at events, and serving as a youth voice to the staff and board of Enterprise. Youth Councilors are invited to participate after becoming part of the Enterprise program.

2022-2023 Youth Council 

Youth Council has been revamped! 2022-2023 Youth Councilors will focus on representing Enterprise at events and at their schools. They may be invited to speak at a fundraiser or Board meeting, and they will share Enterprise opportunities through different means of outreach at their schools. Participants are paid minimum wage, which will end up being around $1,300.

Dates

October 5, 2022 to May 3, 2023

Commitment

Attend a monthly two-hour group meeting and at least one special event. Youth Councilors are invited and expected to participate in a paid summer internship in summer 2023.
