So what’s in it for you? To start, an impressive leadership and community service experience to put on your resume, one that will come in handy when filling out college applications. Plus, given the opportunities to speak to the Mayor and the D.C. Council directly, serving on the Public Charter Youth Leadership Council will improve your public speaking and advocacy skills. Most importantly, this is YOUR chance to engage with your community and have your ideas be heard!
To apply, prospective applicants must submit an application and a 300-500-word essay discussing the qualities that a good leader should possess. The selection committee will make their decisions based on experience, community involvement, school engagement, and demonstrated leadership. The application is due February 6, 2012.
