Additional Details

Starting at Project Everlast's inception in 2007, keeping youth voice front and center was the primary goal. Youth representatives with experience in foster care played a key role in the initial planning process in Omaha, and have continued to shape the direction of Project Everlast.

Council members are asked for input on bills, new programs and policy changes that effect youth in care a big example of that is the work that was done on the Bridges to Independence program, the Know Your Rights brochure and the Youth Court Questionnaire 

  • Legislative Day is an annual event where young people present their support of bills that may be heard during the legislative session that would impact youth and young adults to the Governor of Nebraska.  
  • Our Small Committee consists of elected members to specific positions of leadership and lead the council. The positions of leadership are Secretary, Welcoming Person, Treasurer, Task Manager and Facilitator. Elections are held in June and December of the year and members hold six month terms.
