Youth Leadership Team | Ion Teen Science Café

What is the Youth Leadership Team?

Teens take ownership of the program through the Teen Leadership Teams. The team helps to select Café topics and to prepare presenters. It advertises and draws other teens to the Cafés, and ultimately runs the meetings. An adult leader provides support and training as needed.

Are you in grades 9-12 and interested in volunteering? Would you like to explore new ideas through interaction with a person in the field of scientist? Would you like to learn more about leadership in a fun and exciting environment? The Youth Leadership Team may be for you.

Students will have opportunities to:

• Earn service hour credits

• Interact with leaders within community

• Build their résumé

The Youth Leadership Team is a great way for teenagers to get involved with the planning and event process that occurs when designing and offering events. 

Volunteer applications are available now, and teens interested in a leadership role are encouraged to apply. 

Contact inquiry@ionscience.org for an application.
