Young Americans is thrilled to announce the 20 young adults who will serve on the Youth Advisory Board this school year. Board Members have the opportunity to learn “hands-on” about banking, business and the role of nonprofits in a community while providing valuable advice and insight to Young Americans Bank, the world’s only bank for young people, and its accompanying youth financial education programs.

Besides weighing in on strategies and marketing Board Members receive training and experience in how to serve on a board, on media relations and on philanthropy.  One of the highlights of their board service is choosing the real charities for the Donation Station at Young AmeriTowne.  Board members research Colorado non-profits and pick the six that they feel provide the most meaningful impact on the community.

Selected through a competitive application process, Board Members are 8th-12th graders from throughout the Denver metro area.
