One of the River Hill Community Association’s goals is to provide services to and engage residents of all ages – including our teen population. The Association has a strong history of teen involvement that has grown even stronger with the establishment of the Student Member Committee of the Board and the Teen Advisory Committee (TAC). Both committees provide opportunities for teens to learn more about our community, interact with a variety of residents, develop leadership skills, and build on individual interests and strengths while having fun. Applications are now available for youth interested in serving for the September 1, 2014 – August 31, 2015 term.
Tiffany Kan is currently serving on the Student Member Committee. This committee may have a maximum of two members and the youth are directly involved in the governance of the Association. The Student Members attend all meetings of the Board of Directors, have an advisory vote on issues before the Board, provide a liaison role between their schools and the Association, and are responsible for chairing the TAC. Applicants for this committee must be
rising juniors or seniors.
This year the following local youth are on the TAC: Michael Dai, Pradyun Dixit, Arienne Guiv, Ali Hovet, Karen Ni, Madison Sage, Nicole Young, Stacy Young, and Jennifer Zhang. These teens planned and ran the activities at the Association’s annual Halloween event and Breakfast with Santa. They organized the Family Movie Night and Blanket Making event and donated a total of 50 blankets to Project Linus and Care Wear. As a part of their efforts, the Committee has successfully involved many local teens as volunteers at these events. By participating as volunteers, a greater number of local teens have had an opportunity to expand their knowledge about the Association, engage with residents of all ages, and gain community service hours. Over the summer, the TAC will assist with the Association’s annual Independence Day Parade, the pool party and plan for the return of the Health Fair in September.
The Village Board will appoint the members of both committees following an application and interview process. Applications are available online at www.villageofriverhill.org or at Claret Hall. The deadline for applications is May 31, 2014. For more information, contact Susan M. Smith at 410-531-1749 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
