Teenagers and other young people help their families, schools, and communities prepare for disasters. They can be leaders before, during, and after disasters. Whether you’re just starting to learn about preparedness, want to join or start a youth preparedness program, or are looking for materials to teach the next generation of preparedness leaders, you’ll find lots of options on this page to help you learn how to prepare for a disaster.
We all have a role to play in ensuring the safety of our communities. You, too, can make a difference!
