Students

If you’re a high school student who is passionate about making the world a better place, apply below to be a YouthBoard member for the 2019-2020 school year. Your grades and your clubs don’t matter for this application: the only requirement for YouthRoots is wanting to make a difference. YouthRoots counts for 60 hours of community service, you get to meet new friends and make a real difference in your community! 

We partner with community foundations in Boulder, CO; Sioux Falls, SD; and Summit County, CO to bring YouthRoots to teens in these areas.

Please note that applications for all YouthBoards are now closed. Check back in December for next year’s application!

Nominate a Student

Know a high school student who loves to give back and help those around them? YouthRoots wants to know about them! They’ll get an email from us telling them that someone in the community thinks they would enjoy YouthRoots and it’s completely confidential.

We partner with community foundations in Boulder, CO; Sioux Falls, SD; and Summit County, CO to bring YouthRoots to teens in these areas.
