Faribault YouthBank is looking for new team members for the upcoming school year. If you want to make your community better, come join us!
If you are between the ages of 14 and 19 and live in the Faribault School District or attend a Faribault School we are eager to meet you!
YouthBank grants money to youth-led projects in the community. If you join us, you will get all the training and knowledge you need to work with the team to make informed decisions that will lead to real change for youth here in Faribault.
We awarded $5,000 in our first year, to projects that youth thought of and made a reality! That is real money leading to real change – come be a part of it!
On top of funding valuable community projects, Faribault YouthBank helps young people develop essential life skills and prepares them for future careers. Members of the granting committee are responsible for engaging in community research, fundraising, promoting grant opportunities, reviewing requests for funding and engaging in the decision making process, working alongside young people in promoting their work, writing reports and engaging with grant recipients to learn what worked well.
