Applications Open for Racial Equity Youth Council

Center for Health Equity’s Racial Equity Youth Council is hiring!

As National Youth Violence Prevention Week closes, we are excited to open applications for the Racial Equity Youth Council (REYC).

Established by the Center for Health Equity (CHE) in 2017 to address barriers faced by youth who are not in school and unemployed, the REYC will work towards advancing racial equity to empower youth by 1) developing and facilitating racial equity training for youth-serving organization and 2) developing and conducting research to inform the Louisville Metro Government-wide youth action plan which seeks to put racial equity into practice through policy.

We know we must listen to the young decision-makers in Louisville to change the way they experience their communities.


We are seeking 10 youth who. . .

  • Are between the ages of 16-21
  • Want to understand how racism has shaped our community and ways to meaningfully create change
  • Are passionate about working towards social inequities that directly impact Louisville youth
  • Can commit to weekly Tuesday meetings and local events to move forward the work of the council
  • Are dedicated, compassionate, energetic, and eager to amplify the voices of Louisville youth
  • Believe in the power of youth!
