The RAD Youth Council is a youth run organization, under Excuse Me, that allows youth to become more involved in their community and assist making changes that they see as necessary and important.
The program is made up of children of any age, up to 21.
The RAD Youth have their own board, made up of their members. They discuss and vote on ideas and programs, and those votes are honored.
By empowering these youth with the power of their own voice, we are allowing them to find their courage, power, and strength. We are teaching them to value their ideas and allowing them to learn to value the ideas of their peers, regardless of how silly or difficult they may sound.
RAD Youth may participate in the program at any level they choose. There are several different types of RAD Youth Council members:
~RAD Board Members
~RAD Committee Members
~RAD School Youth Ambassadors
~RAD Youth Council Members
In all levels of participation, youth are encouraged to share ideas, solve problems, speak up and get involved.
