The YE4C Editorial Board: Your Platform for Leadership 

The YE4C Editorial Board is a group of passionate young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are eager to expand their knowledge and empower youth and young adults. Joining the board gives you the opportunity to create meaningful content, refine your leadership skills, collaborate with the federal Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs (the Working Group), and be an ambassador to your peers.  

This 12-18-month virtual opportunity is paid and connects you with other changemakers and federal staff who are doing interesting work, fostering lasting connections. The group is structured to accommodate geographical diversity, giving members the opportunity to learn how to collaborate effectively across time zones using different communication methods (like email, Zoom meetings, and messaging).

Launched in February 2020, the Editorial Board continues to evolve with input from past members to create a dynamic experience. Since it started, dozens of young people have actively engaged with YE4C and each other to be positive agents of change. We are excited to be recruiting our FIFTH cohort!
