What is the CAPSA Youth Council?
The CAPSA Youth Council is an organization of students grades 9-12 who participate in service projects, fundraising opportunities, and help spread awareness about dating violence, healthy relationships, and rape prevention among their peers.
The main goal of the Youth Council is to involve students in the CAPSA Rape Prevention Education Program and allow them a chance to use their leadership experience to help educate their fellow students on the importance of rape prevention and healthy relationships in collaboration with other students throughout Cache Valley. Council members will be required to help design, plan, and implement awareness activities during the school year. The Council will consist of four to five students from five schools: North Cache and South Cache 8-9 Centers, Logan High School, Mountain Crest High School, and SkyView High School.
The council members will have a chance to expand their leadership experience by serving on any of three committees – publicity, awareness, and activities. Each committee will assist with some aspect of CAPSA's annual Rape Prevention efforts, including Teen Dating Violence Awareness Week in February and Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April. Sara Anderson, Rape Prevention Educator at CAPSA, will oversee the activities of each committee and provide guidance and direction throughout the duration of the Council.
This is a great opportunity to develop leadership and communication skills, participate in volunteer service for a non-profit organization, work as a member of a collaborative team with other students in Cache Valley, and build lasting friendships.
We are extremely excited to work with amazing students like you.
