The Board of Directors consists of 8-12 adults (21 years or older) and are appointed by youth. Members of the Board of Directors meet monthly for NUY board meetings on the third Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:00 pm. They are encouraged to be present at various times with youth leadership in NUY’s various programming areas. Members of the Board of Directors are encouraged to both mentor and be mentored by youth board members in leadership, communication, and organizational visioning. Members of the Board of Directors are expected to be advocates for NUY in the community and provide support and resources to the organization as needed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in becoming a member of the Board of Directors. There is a short questionnaire below to gather more information to assist NUY’s youth boards in nominating applicants they believe would help serve the mission of NUY as a member of the Board of Directors.
Going into a week of gratitude and thanks giving, we know that we have so much to be appreciative of. The community of Northfield has never stepped down from a challenge, and they have continually been willing to open both their minds and their hearts to the work around them that needs to be done to make this community a great place for EVERYONE. Never enough words exist to thank all those who give of their time, of their talents, and of their resources. THANK YOU so much to everyone who gave to the NUY during Give to the Max. We are so grateful to you all for believing in the power of youth voice and the creation of a caring community! ...
“Hello, my name is Haley Heiner. I am the Co-President of the Northfield Union of Youth, also known as 'The Key.' I have been attending there for a while now and I’ve honestly never felt more at home there. So many wonderful people have accepted me there and I’ve gained amazing new friendships. The Key has helped me through so much regarding mental health, social skills, financial problems, and more. Without The Key, I don’t know where I would be today, and so many youth could say the same. The Key is the longest-running youth-led and youth-empowering organization recorded in the United States and I want it to stay that way. So many kids, including me, need a safe space like The Key. I'm so grateful that I have a place like this, and I am beyond grateful that our community cares for this organization.”
