BREAK THROUGH THE STATIC

Surviving Suicide. Rebuilding Lives.

Teen Advisory Board

Join Static’s 11/12 School Year TAB!

Teen Advisory Board Position Overview: The Teen Advisory Board (TAB) will be a small group of driven, empathetic, creative and forward-thinking Bay Area teenagers passionate about youth culture and interested in being local advocates for Break Through the Static in their friend groups, schools, clubs and communities.

TAB’s Mission? To catapult a new organization battling a gigantic stigma (surrounding mental health and suicide) into the Bay Area stratosphere, so Static can support and empower suicide-impacted teens, their advocate and allies. In the words of a past TAB member: “movers and shakers are best for this position.” Only teens that want to make a difference should apply.

What Exactly Would We Do? Pilot a private online community, plan and execute youth-focused performance art showcases and exhibits, represent Static at local walks, events and concerts, plan (+ attend!) a winter ski/snowboard trip, and more.

Perks

  • Work alongside a new organization as we build our first youth community on the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula
  • Get community service hours + make new friends
  • Make a HUGE difference that will positively impact you and your peers, families, and communities
  • Free food

Sounds Cool! When Would We Meet? Every other Wednesday evening during the 11/12 school year at Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Palo Alto, CA. Exact time TBD – probably 6 – 8p.

Interested? Please email a thoughtful cover letter that explains why you want to be a part of Static’s TAB and a resume to Anna Klassen at intern@breakthroughthestatic.org with the subject line “Sign Me Up – Teen Advisory Board”.

Deadline: October 1st 2011
