Cabinet Applications

Details:  The Youth Cabinet is comprised of high school students (9-12 grade) from different churches throughout the ANE District.  We meet about once a month from September through April to brainstorm, envision and plan for the Senior High district events.  In addition the cabinet not only attends the events, but they also provide leadership for those events.
We are looking for all person and leadership types (visionary, creative, organized…) as we determine the leadership team for our 2018-2019 Youth Cabinet.  We believe youth will enjoy and benefit from their experience on Cabinet!
Applications will be distributed in February and then due back to the District Office by April 30, 2018 for the 2018-2019 Youth Cabinet.
