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 2020-2021 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, and you get to meet new friends and make a real difference in your community!
Applications for Denver-area YouthBoards are due April 10, 2020!
We also partner with community foundations in Boulder, CO; Sioux Falls, SD; and Summit County, CO to bring YouthRoots to teens in these areas. Applications for these locations will open in 2020.
