Breaking the Cycle of Violence

Youth Advisory Council

Missouri Shores Domestic Violence Center | Youth Advisory Council

Our Youth Advisory Council aims to equip teens with the tools needed to advocate and educate themselves and their peers. Students who are enrolled in their Freshman-Senior year of high school and reside in Hughes, Stanley, Sully, Jones, Haakon, or Hyde counties are encouraged to apply. Eligible applicants should also be motivated, community-involved, engage in positive peer interactions, and have demonstrated effective leadership skills.

Applicants selected for the Youth Advisory Council will participate in an interview, either via Zoom or in-person, with the Executive Director, Client Services Supervisor, and selected board members. If chosen, Youth Advisory Council members should expect to participate in quarterly meetings beginning in October, collaborate on project goals to enhance awareness and education of teen dating violence, network with other students, and engage with their peers to prevent, recognize, and stop teen dating violence.
