Rainbow Communications began a Youth Advisory Council in 2021 that consisted of juniors from local high schools within Rainbow’s serving area. The Youth Advisory Council’s purpose is to educate and involve high school juniors in the scope of services provided by Rainbow and obtain ideas and suggestions from student leaders regarding technology.
The council members attended five meetings throughout the school year. During the meetings, the members learned about the services that Rainbow offers, the different career paths available within Rainbow, and planned an event for one of their school’s home basketball games. In exchange for their time, ideas, and participation, council members will receive a $500 scholarship upon completion of the program.
Applications for the 2022-2023 YAC were due May 12th. We are currently in the process of reviewing the applications.
