Boards, Commissions and Committees
We need young movers and shakers to participate in policy discussions.
Governing decisions are not just made during the legislative session. Private businesses and nonprofits, boards, commissions and committees are where critical community decisions are made, and are often where agendas are set and policies are constructed. Young leaders can also contribute to the civic process as volunteers on political campaigns. Active civic engagement and the representation of young leaders on boards and commissions is are significant mechanisms through which young professionals can--and should--participate in the governing process.
To promote civic participation, ELI will:
Increase accessibility and opportunity for young leaders to serve on public sector boards, commissions and committees.
Connect young leaders to volunteer opportunities in government and in the community, including: candidates, organizations and initiatives.
Provide quarterly trainings on how to make an impact through government service, including an annual legislative training for young advocates.
