Strong Like AK Teen Leadership Committee

Strong Like AK

Teen Leadership Committee 


Strong Like AK is seeking high school students who are interested in pediatric cancer research, educating the public and fellow youth about cancer, and making a difference in the lives of patients and caregivers experiencing this disease. This is an excellent opportunity for high school students to gain volunteer experience outside of typical after school hours. 


The Strong Like AK Teen Leadership Committee will function within the organization and work collaboratively with the Board of Directors. We believe in our community's youth and value their ideas, concerns, and perspective. We hope that working together will create a substantial impact not only in our society but worldwide. 


The teens chosen will have a unique opportunity to learn about the functions and demands of being a board member, as well as develop leadership skills, engage donors, participate in and organize fundraisers, build community awareness, represent other youth and teens throughout the community, and nurturing a heart of service. We hope that the Teen Leadership Committee members will carry these skills with them in the future as they continue to serve our community and support children fighting pediatric cancer.
