Youth Health Advisory Council - Applications Open!
Who: The Health Advisory Council (HAC) will be a new council of young people from across the country dedicated to creating change in their communities and making people more aware of personal health issues (while inspiring others to do the same).
- Pfizer (a pharmaceutical company) and Do Something will be partnering on some awesome personal health campaigns--such as getting more young people vaccinated.
- Do Something and Pfizer need young people who are willing to commit to the Health Advisory Council until the end of 2013, providing us with a wide range of opinions and life experiences to shape our activities and campaigns.
- The HAC members will be contacted every other week via email with sneak peaks into new things we are rolling out which we want feedback on, and will be asked to group video chat (with other HACers and Do Something staff) a few times per year for more in depth feedback and discussion
- Council members will be selected at the end of April and will start the second week of May.
- HAC member responsibilities are 1.5 hrs every other week until the end of 2013.
- Social Change, of course! It is vital to the success of DoSomething.org/Pfizer campaigns that we have a group of young people who are excited about the campaigns and give us feedback to make them as kickass as possible.
- Leadership Skills. HAC members will develop important skills they can use throughout their lives -- such as decision making, working with a team, presentation skills, and developing creative ideas.
- Your Resume. Feel free to shout from the rooftops that you’re part of this exclusive council. Hey, we can all use a little help getting into college.
- We’re fun. We promise. And we’re excited to get to you know and have you join the DS posse.
What: Providing feedback about ideas and early plans for health initiatives/campaigns. Examples:
- Assisting in the determination of ideal logos, images, resources, campaign concepts, and website content.
- Playing with the early version of a health-related facebook game and providing feedback on ways to improve.
- Actively engage with our private HAC Facebook group -- providing feedback to small questions or supporting other HAC members’ ideas.
