Teen Leadership Committee 

Welcome to the Strong Like AK Teen Leadership Committee

At Strong Like AK, we are driven by a collective passion to make a difference in the lives of children fighting pediatric cancer. We believe in the strength and potential of today's youth, and we are excited to offer a unique opportunity for teenagers to become the driving force behind our mission.

Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders

The Strong Like AK Teen Leadership Committee functions within our organization, working collaboratively with our Board of Directors. We recognize the value of our community's youth and the fresh perspectives they bring. By joining our committee, teens will have a platform to voice their ideas, concerns, and perspectives, allowing them to make a substantial impact not only in our society but also worldwide.

What Sets Us Apart:

Our Teen Leadership Committee goes beyond just being a part of an organization; it's an empowering journey that opens doors to personal growth and skill development. Teens chosen to join this prestigious committee will have a unique opportunity to:

- Develop Leadership Skills: Through workshops and hands-on experiences, teens will sharpen essential leadership skills such as communication, decision-making, and teamwork. Our goal is to nurture confident and capable leaders who will thrive in any endeavor they pursue.

- Organize Impactful Fundraisers: With guidance and support, our teen leaders will spearhead fundraisers that make a direct impact on supporting pediatric cancer patients and their families. We believe in the power of their creativity to turn ideas into successful initiatives.

- Raise Awareness through Social Media: In today's digital age, social media has the power to inspire change and raise awareness. Our Teen Leadership Committee members will become social media ambassadors, using their voices to advocate for pediatric cancer awareness and mobilize the community.

- Advocate for Children Fighting Cancer: Our teens will represent the voices of their peers and advocate for the needs and interests of children fighting cancer. This experience will empower them to become compassionate advocates and agents of change.

- Build Lifelong Friendships: Beyond serving a noble cause, the Teen Leadership Committee fosters a strong sense of community and friendship. Working together on a shared mission creates lifelong bonds that extend far beyond the committee.
