Idaho Meth Project calls for teen applicants

The Idaho Meth Project is seeking applicants for the Teen Advisory Council for the 2014-2015 school year. The council assists the project in its statewide community outreach program and provides a teen perspective on the prevention campaign’s strategies and messages.  Applications are due April 25.

The Idaho Meth Project Teen Advisory Council is comprised of 30 high school students from across the state who are selected through a competitive application process. Council members participate in school presentations, volunteer at community events throughout Idaho, reach out to friends and families, and engage peers online via social media. The Idaho Meth Project Teen Advisory Council provides an engaging and exciting forum to collaborate with peers, earn community service and leadership experience, and help create unique events that promote meth prevention messages.

Applications are available on the Project’s website at www.IdahoMethProject.org and require a few answers from applicants about why they want to be involved and how they plan to contribute to the cause.  A letter of recommendation from a teacher, coach or mentor is required.  No prior leadership or volunteering experience is necessary and teens from all corners of the state are eligible to apply.
