FEMA Youth Preparedness Council

Youth in Alabama can make a difference and transform the resilience and preparedness of communities across the country.

Students in 8th, 9th, 10th, or 11th grade who are engaged in community service or are interested in emergency preparedness, may apply to serve on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Youth Preparedness Council

During Council members’ two-year term, they meet with FEMA staff on a regular basis to discuss the youth perspective on emergency preparedness, share information with their communities, and participate in local and national emergency preparedness projects.

Adults working with youth or emergency management are encouraged to share the application with youth who might be interested in applying. Applications are due March 31, 2017. Applicants must submit a completed application form, two letters of recommendation, and academic records.
