United Way’s Youth Fund Distribution Committee- Empowering Youth

United Way’s Youth Fund Distribution Committee (YFDC) is seeking High School Students to join a unique program with the goal of engaging and empowering students. Students help solve community problems affecting youth and collaborate with other young leaders. This committee provides a challenging opportunity to instill volunteerism in future adult leaders and identifies critical issues important to students through hands-on experiences. Students will learn about the needs of the community, particularly the needs of our youth, and the agencies addressing those issues, generate fundraising to help support agencies and programs, and research, interview and make funding decisions to distribute dollars to non-profit partners that serve youth in Geauga County

Student applications should be submitted by the end of October and be approved by the student’s parents and High School Advisor. Meetings will be held once a month on Monday evenings plus one day during the week in Spring 2018. Schools represented have been Berkshire, Cardinal, Chagrin Falls, Chardon, Gilmour, Kenston, Ledgemont, Newbury, Notre Dame Cathedral Latin and West Geauga.
