Keep Evansville Beautiful is searching for inspiring youth leaders from middle and high schools to form the new Keep Evansville Beautiful Green Teen Council. Applications are being accepted now through August 31, 2017 at the KEB office.

     The Keep Evansville Beautiful Green Teen Council will offer youth from diverse backgrounds a chance to participate in a leadership development program, while acting as ambassadors for Keep Evansville Beautiful and serving as leaders in their own communities. The Council is being created to elevate youth voice and contribute to Keep Evansville Beautiful education programming, while providing young people with a unique opportunity to be drivers of their own ideas from conceptualization to implementation.

     “The Keep Evansville Beautiful Green Teen Council offers young people the opportunity to build invaluable skills for college, demonstrate their passion for the environment and community involvement, and inspire others to take action,” said Blair Martin, Marketing & Education Coordinator for Keep Evansville Beautiful.

     Keep Evansville Beautiful is looking for young people enrolled in grades 6-12 who are interested in partnering with other youth from around the greater Evansville area who are passionate about the environment and making a difference. Green Teen Council members will be required to demonstrate a strong commitment to volunteerism, philanthropy and “creating a beautiful, inviting, and healthy outdoor environment to assure an improved quality of life and enhanced economic growth for the greater Evansville area.” Members will also be encouraged to represent Keep Evansville Beautiful at conferences and special events.

     Students interested in applying should be enrolled in grades 6-12, live in the greater Evansville area, have a minimum GPA of 2.0, and be in good disciplinary standing. Community, youth, and faith-based organizations and educators are invited to encourage youth who are interested in applying to fill out an application. The Keep Evansville Beautiful Green Teen Council members will be announced in mid-September.
