FYI: Youth Opportunity ! State Farm Youth Advisory Board Opportunity

http://statefarmyab.com/apply/the-board/


Become a Board Member

Become a Board Member From this page you can apply to be a part of the State Farm Youth Advisory Board. 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 the resources of $5 million dollars to grant signature service-learning projects that seek to solve important domestic issues. Please read all of the information carefully.



Commitment expected of the Board Members

The Board’s work is handled through four in-person meetings at State Farm’s Corporate headquarters in Bloomington, Illinois or at other locations within the U.S. Primary commitment to the board and time working is through electronic communications between meetings. The expectation is that all associate and board members will commit 15 hours per month to board activities.

All Youth Advisory Board meetings are mandatory for all board and associate board members.

Previous boards felt that the first board meeting is critical to understanding the mission, helping develop processes and to get to know fellow board members before working online to develop the grant proposals.

The funding meeting is where the board makes all its decisions on grants to be funded.

IF you cannot make these meetings, your candidacy as an applicant will be affected. Extenuating circumstances will be taken into account.
