STATE FARM YOUTH ADVISORY BOARD
The State Farm® Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is one of the nation’s most unique philanthropic programs. Started in 2006, the YAB has funded more than $36 million to unique, youth-led service-learning projects, affecting an estimated 21 million people!
The State Farm YAB is made up of 30 amazing 17-20-year-old students from diverse backgrounds from all across the United States. Each year, they are charged with implementing a $5 million signature philanthropic grant budget. Through two separate grant programs, the YAB addresses issues critical to communities across the U.S. by providing grants of up to $100,000 to schools and non-profit organizations. Grants must address an unmet community need, empower young people, be sustainable, and incorporate all of the elements of service-learning. The process is unique in that youth are given full responsibility and resource decisions. The Board researches pertinent societal issues, review grant applications, and ultimately decide the grant recipients.
The 2016 State Farm Youth Advisory Board service-learning grant application is now available. Request for Proposals must be submitted online by April 29. $4 million will be granted to quality, youth-led, service-learning initiatives. For more information, please visit www.sfyab.com.
