EarthEcho Youth Leadership Council

EarthEcho International was founded on the belief that young people have the power to change the world. You are invited to apply to join the Youth Leadership Council (YLC) - a team of young environmental leaders, selected annually through a competitive application process, who play a key role leading EarthEcho’s programs while developing and implementing campaigns to mobilize young people worldwide to protect our ocean planet.

Through this unique experience, you will grow as an environmental leader, gain an understanding of the operations of an international non-profit organization as you shape our work and mission, and build connections with your peers and EarthEcho partners working around the world to ensure a sustainable future.
