YAR Board

The Youth As Resources board is responsible for screening grant applications, viewing project presentations, and making funding recommendations. Board members also attend project site visits, participate in board service projects, and represent YAR at community events.

The YAR board is comprised of youth and adults from Racine County and represents the community's diversity. Seventy five percent of the board members are youth under age 24 and the same percentage of board officer positions are held by youth. The individuals best suited to be YAR board members are young people and adults who understand the value of youth involvement in the community and are willing to work as partners to achieve the work of the board.
