So a lot of people have heard about our Maryland AALEAD Youth Council, and a lot of people have been wondering “What is the Maryland AALEAD Youth Council?” Our Maryland AALEAD Youth Council is a student council elected by other AALEAD students consisting of positions such as President, Vice President, Secretary, Historians, Treasurer, and a representative from each school AALEAD collaborates with. We, as a council, help decide the events that we’re going to have and help coordinate how it’s going to happen with the help of the AALEAD staff. We also collaborate with the DC AALEAD Youth Council to see how both high school programs can come together for events and special projects. Our youth council is a great way for students to get more involved in AALEAD and to see how hard it is to actually host an event. If you are an active AALEAD member I encourage you to run for a spot in the AALEAD Youth Council next year. And if you’re not a member of AALEAD then I encourage you to sign up!
