Become a leader

We encourage youth members to become leaders by serving on the leadership council or joining one of our three committees. All positions are voted on by other Prism members every April. Applications are distributed by the adult leaders in May at the weekly meetings and once all the applications are in, and votes are tallied, then candidates are announced.

Youth Leadership Council
The youth leadership council consists of the president, vice president, coordinator, education and training chair, marking and fundraising chair, and the special events chair. This group meets every other week and is responsible for the overall direction of Prism including approval of special events, field trips, fundraisers, topic ideas, and educational workshops. They also help to decide policies, rules, and norms for the group.

Education and Training Committee
This committee is responsible for the development and implementation of special trainings for both youth and adults. This includes generating ideas for and running the quarterly Community-Wide Events and presenting at different conferences as arranged. 

Other committees:

  • Fundraising and Marketing
  • Volunteering and Outreach
  • Special Events
