Teen Leadership Council

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Teen Leadership Council is made up of twelve students from schools across the state who work together on a service learning project that addresses hunger in New Jersey.

This year’s Teen Leadership Council will complete eight monthly leadership training sessions from November 2018 to June 2019 as they work towards facilitating New Jersey’s first teen-hosted Hunger Forum to raise awareness about hunger and inspire other teens to take action through community service projects.

Interested students should send the completed application to Michelle Jansen by October 26, 2018. Selected students will be notified of their acceptance by November 2, 2018.
