The City of Boise is taking bold steps to address climate change and bringing diverse youth leaders together to help drive climate solutions. Boise’s first-ever Youth Climate Action Council will launch in April 2021. The city is currently seeking online applications for student members through Sunday, April 4.
Applicants must meet these requirements:
- Reside in Boise city limits
- Be a sophomore or junior in high school (or equivalent)
- Be able to commit to a nine-month term from April – December 2021
- Be able to commit to attending at least one 90-minute meeting every month (including through the summer)
The city is seeking diverse and dynamic students with the leadership potential to turn passion for climate challenges into direct community action. This unique role gives students the opportunity to help lead their community in climate action and get a behind-the-scenes at local climate action planning. The council members will work alongside city staff to imagine, strategize and complete the design and building of projects and actions that will tangibly impact Boise.
Council meetings will be virtual until further notice. In-person events will be determined based on COVID-19 guidelines.
