Youth Advisory Board

Congresswoman Katie Porter is seeking talented high school and college students (ages 16-24) with community experience in California's 45th Congressional District to participate in her six-month public service program.

In this role, each youth advisor is required to organize as a cohort and meet with the Congresswoman or her staff every month to discuss legislation on a wide variety of policy areas including infrastructure, gun violence prevention, homelessness, economic reform, foreign policy, and more.

The application for her fifth cohort, which will convene in January and adjourn in June, has been closed. Applications for the sixth cohort will open in May 2022. Qualified applicants with demonstrated experience supporting their local communities will be invited for an interview.
