With support from Xylem Watermark, the YLC created the EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassadors, a leadership training program equipping young conservation leaders with the tools and resources needed to lead ongoing water quality monitoring efforts while educating their community about the importance of protecting local waterways.
Youth Leadership Council
EarthEcho’s Youth Leadership Council (YLC) is a platform for today’s emerging trailblazers and visionaries in the environmental field. Comprised of diverse leaders, ages 15-22, each YLC member has demonstrated an ability to engage and mobilize their peers and their communities to have a positive impact on the planet.
The YLC plays a critical role leading and developing EarthEcho’s suite of programs, while providing insight and expertise from a youth perspective to shape our work to empower young people to create a sustainable future for our planet.
YLC members have the opportunity to serve in an advisory capacity and gain an understanding of the operations of an international non-profit organization, help lead initiatives to expand the impact of EarthEcho’s programs, collaborate with a network of young leaders from around the world, connect to EarthEcho’s partner organizations, take part in professional development learning opportunities to support personal interests, and have the opportunity to be elected to serve as a youth member of EarthEcho’s Board of Directors.
