Youth Advisory Board Applications

State Farm is now accepting applications for Associate Youth Advisory Board members
Deadline for applications is March 31, 2008

Associate Youth Advisory Board members receive a $3,000 scholarship to be used for post-secondary education at a four-year, two-year or vocational training program. Associate members may become Board members with a second year of service and receive a $5,000 scholarship.

“The State Farm Youth Advisory Board is an opportunity to serve on a national board with other highly motivated, autonomous young people,” said a current Youth Advisory Board member. “We are empowered by a dedicated corporation to create real, long-lasting change.”

The State Farm Youth Advisory Board is comprised of 30 young adults ages 17-20 from communities across the country and Canada with three at-large members representing State Farm’s national service-learning partners. The Board’s mission is to create and oversee a signature service-learning initiative to address pressing issues that have a direct impact on communities. Youth Board members are responsible for identifying these issues, overseeing the site selections and grant making process, providing technical assistance to the site grantees, and assisting with communications and outreach.

The application deadline to join the Youth Advisory Board is March 31. Selected applicants will be notified by the end of May. Information and applications are available at
