Did you know that over 75% of our high school students want to engage in our community, but only 26% actually do? And the number one reason for not engaging is they feel their voice isn't valued? Let's change that! YouthRoots is currently seeking high school students who are passionate about their community to apply today. Applications are due September 10.
Since starting in 2010, across all the locations of YouthRoots, 283 students involved have raised and donated over $100,000 to ultimately serve 48,053 at-risk children and youth! The program is after school and meets approximately every two weeks for two hours from September through May. Dinner is provided and the entire program is free. Students get a real-world experience of making a significant difference while learning all about leadership and teamwork.
More information on the program can be found on our website www.youthroots.org. The application is also on our website at www.youthroots.org/apply.
