Earlier this year, we were eager to announce Johnson & Johnson and FHI 360’s joint effort in launching the very first student-led BTE Global Youth Leadership Council (YLC)! We are now excited to share that this YLC will be launching November 2019 with its very first council! This ten-member YLC gives youth a platform to voice their opinions and shape the future of the global BTE program. Members will share their experiences and make recommendations to advance BTE student learning, engagement, and retention. Youth representing all regions of current BTE sites took great initiative in completing an application process for selection and truly outdid themselves. We are thrilled to begin this partnership with them!
