Are you interested in community service? Do you want to take a leadership role in your community?
The SCI Lynn Citywide Youth Council is looking for new members. If you are a Middle School or High School student and live in Lynn, please consider joining the Citywide Youth Council. Applications are available below to download as attachments, or at the SCI Lynn office, located at 52 Andrew Street, Straight Ahead Ministries, Family and Children’s Services, Girls Incorporated of Lynn, and the Greater Lynn YMCA. This is the first year of the SCI Lynn Citywide Youth Council, and we seek to engage a diverse group from ages 12 to 18 who share a desire to make a difference in their community.
The Youth Council will meet every other week, on a weekday, after school, but the exact day and time will be determined by the popular vote of the Youth Council. Meetings usually last one hour, and light refreshments will be provided. From November to June, the Youth Council will lead community service projects and civic engagement projects, including the distribution and management of grants to other youth initiated service projects such as park clean ups and resource fairs . The SCI Lynn Citywide Youth Council also offers an outstanding opportunity to enhance leadership through the use of SCI's Civic Skills Checklist; this provides a concrete way to build practical skills such as public speaking and event planning.
Remember, applications will be available at Family and Children’s Services of Greater Lynn, located at 111 North Common Street, Straight Ahead Ministries, and the SCI Lynn office. Applications can be returned to the SCI Lynn office, located at 52 Andrew Street or emailed to GayLynne Samsonoff at GSamsonoff@socialcapitalinc.org
The deadline for applications is Monday, November 2nd at 5pm. If you have any questions please contact the SCI Lynn AmeriCorps Youth Leadership Coordinator, GayLynne Samsonoff at 781-599-1269.
This program is coordinated by SCI Lynn, and sponsored by the Amelia Peabody Foundation, Cabot Family Charitable Trust, Foley Hoag Foundation, and the Mass. Service Alliance.
