The FEMA Youth Preparedness Council was formed in 2012 to bring together youth leaders from across the country who are highly interested and engaged in advocating youth preparedness and making a difference in their communities. The Council members are selected based on their dedication to public service, their efforts in making a difference in their communities, and their potential to expand their impact as national advocates for youth preparedness. FEMA has extended the application deadline to March 30th, 2018. If you have any questions about the requirements to be on the YPC, please visit the FAQ.
