ICADV is seeking high school students to participate on our state-level youth advisory council. Selected youth will work with peers to develop the Coalition’s violence prevention initiatives and promote social justice. The ICADV Youth Council is a group of Indiana teens who are working to prevent violence through the change of culture. Usually when we try to prevent violence, we are focused on telling individuals how to stay safe. Instead, this council will explore and work on making our communities safer. Youth Council members will be compensated with a monthly stipend. For more information, to be considered, or to refer a young person, please contact Stephanie Solomon (she/her) at email@example.com or 317.917.3685, ext. 115. Click here for the Council application.
