Youth Council

Are you a young adult interested in making a positive impact on the lives of those living with epilepsy? Then the Youth Council of the Epilepsy Foundation Eastern PA is right for you! The Youth Council will work with staff to create programs and services that are specifically for the youth of our community, as well as raise funds for these programs.

What will Youth Council members do?

  • Create opportunities for youth leadership and networking
  • Apply personal skills and interests to create real world experience
  • Make a difference in the lives of people with epilepsy
  • Serve as ambassadors for the foundation’s mission
  • Learn more about epilepsy and what others are doing to help
  • Reach out to key political leaders about the importance of epilepsy
  • We are looking for young adults, ages 18-25, who would like to build leadership and teamwork skills, are motivated to make a difference in their communities, and can communicate our message. Members of the Youth Council will be developing new educational programs, advocacy projects, and fundraising events for youth with epilepsy, their peers, and the community surrounding them. Youth Council members may or may not have epilepsy.
