Youth Now gives high school graduates under the age of 26 an opportunity to serve on a non-profit board of directors. Over the course of the year-long program, participants develop their leadership skills, while receiving guidance from a board mentor. They also take part in a series of conferences, on topics ranging from strategic planning, to fund development, to board governance.
Through Youth Now, young people get to contribute to their community in a meaningful way, while non-profit organizations benefit from the new ideas and fresh perspectives of young community leaders.
We're now accepting applications for the 2017-18 edition of the program, which kicks off in September. If you're interested in taking part, please complete the application form below, and submit it by Thursday, August 31. As spaces are limited, we encourage you to apply early.
