Chicago Fair Trade’s Youth Advisory Council brings together Chicagoland teens and undergraduate students who share a passion for building an equitable economy.
As part of our ongoing work to meaningfully involve young people in the fair trade movement, the Youth Advisory Council meets once a month to tackle a question related to Chicago Fair Trade’s work. Our Youth Councilors benefit from being part of a like-minded community and gain valuable leadership skills to add to their college applications and resumes. Chicago Fair Trade benefits from their excellent advice!
We’re now in our second year of running the Youth Advisory Council, and we’re delighted to welcome our wonderful 2023-4 cohort. Check out their bios below!
While we are not currently seeking new applicants for the 2023-4 Youth Council, we are always eager to hear from teens and undergraduate students in Chicagoland with a demonstrated passion for fair trade. If that sounds like you and you’d like to get involved, please email us at email@example.com.
