CURE knows that socially engaged young people can effect positive change. They are resourceful and know how to access and navigate their ways through different settings to find and create opportunities to be engaged in purposeful collective action that can lead to positive social change. Through our Youth Council, CURE is committed to engaging youth as individuals with talents, opinions and a desire to make a difference.
The CURE Youth Council is comprised of 12 high school sophomores and juniors who are passionate about service, learning about nonprofits from the inside out and, most importantly, about CURE’s mission. Youth council members serve two-year terms and meet on average 5 times each year. Members have the opportunity to attend at least one meeting of CURE’s Board of Directors and be involved in CURE events.
Through the Youth Council, CURE hopes to contribute to the development of future leaders, educate and nurture the seeds of philanthropy and community service in our youth. The Youth Council will serve as ambassadors for CURE Childhood Cancer in the community.
