Here is your chance to give voice to youth issues on a national level, as a member of the State Farm Youth Advisory Board. The YAB (Yabbies) oversees the distribution of $5 million in service-learning grants to communities through out the US. They are actively recruiting new members.
The YAB is one of the nation’s most exciting opportunities for youth empowerment and development. The board is comprised of 30 youth from around the country who serve as equal members on the board. The board is given responsibility over $5 million dollars to grant service-learning and community impact projects that seek to solve important domestic issues. Board Members are selected through a competitive application process, and all applications are read and reviewed by at least two members of an internal review team at Corporate.
To serve on the board, you must agree to commit to 3 meetings annually in Bloomington, Indiana. Board members’ travel, food and lodging expenses are all paid for. Only 30 youth serve on the board so selection is highly competitive.
