Meet the 2012/2013 Youth Leadership Board!
The YLB is: Mia King, Sage Folkins, Davinaty Castillo, Sarah Zhou, Nava Gross, Elizabeth Turnell
From October through June members of the Youth Leadership Board volunteer approximately 10 hours a month at Richard Hugo House on Capitol Hill. The Youth Leadership Board organizes and hosts Stage Fright, provides peer-to-peer creative writing mentorship to other teens, promotes Hugo House youth programs around the city, plans events, brainstorms new programs and activities and puts together an anthology of student work at the end of the school year.
Members of the Youth Leadership Board gain an invaluable opportunity to cultivate personal leadership skills and give back to other youth in Seattle’s writing community. They earn 90+ community service hours for their work, free tickets to Hugo House events and the time and space to work on their own writing.
Interested in getting involved? Hugo House looks for Youth Leadership Board members who have a passion for writing, an eye for organizing and planning events, the ability to give helpful and encouraging feedback during peer mentorship and who are ready to commit to volunteering 10 hrs/month from October through June. Applications for the 2013/2014 YLB will be available in Summer 2013.
