To community partners, educators and students:

Applications are now available for new board members for the State Farm Youth Advisory Board (YAB). This is an incredible opportunity for a young person to grow as a leader, help out their communities, and network with a diverse group of 28 youth, ages 17-20, from across the U.S!

The YAB board is responsible for granting $5 million dollars in service-learning and community impact grants that seek to solve important domestic issues. As a member of the YAB, students will be provided an amazing personal developmental opportunity, as well as being able to make a long-lasting impact in communities they care about and provide solutions to today’s pertinent issues.

Students can apply now by visiting http://sfyab.com/apply/the-board/. The application deadline is Oct. 3, 2014 at 5 PM (CST).

Please also forward this information to any 17-20 year old that you think would be interested in becoming a board member. They can check out the YAB on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube!

With a passion for education and service, our youth can make a difference! Thank you for helping us spread the word.
