NAZA Youth in Action! Youth Community Leader Application
NAZA is now seeking 7 high school youth (in 10th-12th grade) to serve as Youth Community Leaders for its Youth in Action initiative, which will create a network across Nashville that gives young people a supported platform to voice their opinions and ideas for reform, and furthermore teach youth about advocacy, and how to become involved in an area that they are passionate about. Each Youth Community Leader will be assigned to a NAZA-funded afterschool program location in the North Nashville area. Responsibilities will include meeting with a Youth Program Leader (a middle school youth) on a weekly basis from October through April (when MNPS is in session) and supporting the Youth Program Leader and their peers as they plan and implement their actions. Additional responsibilities include a monthly meeting with other Youth Community Leaders to discuss their work at the NAZA-funded programs and to elevate the ideas of youth and the themes that are arising throughout North Nashville. Based on the ideas of program youth as well as the needs and opportunities within North Nashville, Youth Community Leaders will develop an action plan for at least 3 youth-led projects in North Nashville and receive support on implementing the projects from a committee (which will meet quarterly). Youth Community Leaders will be empowered to assess needs and opportunities in the North Nashville area and encouraged to designate additional time to support these youth-led projects.

Youth Community Leaders would spend approximately two hours a week in their role, with some weeks being a bit lighter and others a bit heavier. A Youth Community Leader must be available during the hours of 3-6 at least one day a week (Monday-Thursday) to meet with the youth in their paired program. They should also have additional availability during these hours for the monthly meetings. This initiative would last approximately 36 weeks, and require at least 100 hours of service during the 2019-2020 school year. The Youth Community Leader role is a volunteer leadership opportunity, with the opportunity to log hours spent on this initiative as volunteer hours. This experience would be a great addition to a resume and/or college application. Youth Community Leaders who successfully complete their service will also receive letters of recommendation upon request. Furthermore, this opportunity allows Youth Community Leaders to advance their 21st century skills that may help with professional development. Please email dukea21@ensworth.com with any questions or further inquiry! Applications are due by Tuesday, October 1st, but interviews will begin immediately.
