Youth Leadership Opportunity for Dallas Pride

Written By: Judith July 7, 2009 No Comment
dallasprideOnce again, Youth First Texas will be the sole beneficiary for the Alan Ross Freedom Parade that wraps up the activities for Dallas Pride week and we will be volunteering to help with the parade.
This year we have an awesome opportunity for a youth member from YFT to represent us on the steering committee with the Dallas Tavern Guild that coordinates and plans many of the pride week events including the Alan Ross Freedom Parade.  Steering committee members have historically been recognized in the “Pride Guide” that comes out in the Dallas Voice.
The youth member chosen will be a full member of the steering committee (great on your resume!) and will have the following responsibilities:
* Attend all steering committee meetings (usually on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm at the Round Up Saloon, meetings occur 1-2 times per month until pride)
* Represent YFT at steering committee events during pride week including meetings and the VIP reception on Saturday night
* Work closely with Jeremy L (steering committee member and YFT volunteer) for planning
* Coordinate all YFT volunteers before, during and after the Alan Ross Freedom Parade (Jeremy will not be helping here as he is responsible for supervising and coordinating the police officers who work the parade)
Requirements:
* Must be a YFT youth member who is at least 18 years old (legal requirement to enter Round Up Saloon for meetings)
* Must be willing to take on a leadership role
* Must be willing to represent YFT at steering committee meetings and events during pride week
* Must have a way to get to meetings (transpotation)
* Must be available Wednesday evenings for meetings and available all of pride weekend (September 18-20)
Interested youth should write a one page essay on why he/she should be chosen to represent YFT on the steering committee and turn it in no later than Wednesday, July 15th.  Those interested will be interviewed at the YFT Youth Center next Thursday between 6:30pm and 7:30pm before big group.  There’s a lot of work to do, but a lot of fun to be had doing it!
