Join the Youth Planning Committee

Cincinnati Nature Center is now seeking applicants to form a youth-led committee to plan this year’s summit.

All youth ages 13-18 are encouraged to apply to become a committee member. We are looking for a diverse range of talents to help make this year’s summit the best yet!

  • Our youth-led committee will coordinate topics and presenters, while gaining experiences in conference planning tasks like email communications, marketing strategies, and the dynamics of teamwork.

  • The summit planning process will span a 6-month period: April – October 2021. The committee will hold a 2-hour meeting each month, with additional time being required as we near the summit date. Youth participants can expect to serve a minimum of 50 volunteer hours to complete their commitment.

  • Applicants will be chosen based on their responses to questions regarding the skills they can bring to this team.
