Savannah Teen Council Application 2020-2021
Thank you for your interest in joining Teen Council!

Our mission is to empower, educate, and inspire those we know, including our peers, our families, and communities. The Teen Council educates about human sexuality and healthy decision making. We use our voices to advocate for just and humane sexual attitudes and policies. Teen Council exists in many cities, but our Savannah Teen Council started in 2020, so your voice can be a big influence on our group.

Teen Council is made up of a diverse student body from local schools. Members come to the group with different beliefs and viewpoints. No one is expected to already know about sexual health and prevention issues. We strive to create a Council that is strong and varied in its membership and work actively to build a group that is anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-homophobic.

What We Do:
- We create peer to peer dialogue.
- We present as volunteer educators on various topics, such as healthy relationships, consent, HIV/AIDS, and birth control methods in local classrooms and other locations in the community.
- We act as resources by sharing sexual health information with our friends and peers.
- We participate in weekly meetings and trainings to increase knowledge and skills.
- We are part of the solution while connecting others to this important work!


What does it mean to be a Teen Council member?

To be on Teen Council, you must:
• Be a current 9th, 10th, or 11th grade student (be a 10th, 11th, or 12th grade student during the UPCOMING 2020/2021 school year.)
• Have interest in providing accurate sexual health information to peers.
• Be responsible in budgeting time and keeping up with academic work.
• Sometimes miss school for presentations.
• Prioritize Teen Council. Members are expected to plan other extra-curricular activities (work, clubs, sports, etc.) around Teen Council. If you are doing more than one other extra-curricular activity, please ask yourself if you really have the time to commit to this program.

Weekly meetings and an overnight Retreat in the fall are mandatory for Teen Council members.
Weekly meetings are held at the Savannah Planned Parenthood, TUESDAYS from 5:30 - 8:00 PM (during the school year only). Dinner is provided at each meeting. Your hours count towards community service hours.
Retreat date is TBD, hopefully in August.

We will call you to set up an interview date and time after you submit your application.

If you have any questions, please email Julia, the facilitator at julia.satterlee@ppse.org or call her at (912) 721-6491. Please leave a message if you call as I am not currently in the office.
