Meet NUY: Youth Board
NUY believes that youth are the experts when it comes to youth. All programs and services are the direct result of youth identifying needs and proposing solutions. NUY’s staff are hired, reviewed, and report directly to the youth. NUY depends on the insightful and tireless work of generations of youth.
Youth Board members serve a one year term and are elected by their peers (each June). Each youth board elects their own president and vice president, who then serve alongside NUY’s Board of Directors during their term.
