The WYO Youth Board usually meets the third Wednesday of every month from 6:00-7:00pm, but check the monthly schedule to make sure of the date.
In the past year, the Youth Board has consisted of 10 members from New Trier High School, Glenbrook South High School, North Shore Country Day School, Evanston Township High School, and Northridge Preparatory School, but the group is always open to new teens.
The Youth Board’s responsibilities include:
Engaging peers at WYO events (concerts, volunteer activities & recreational programming)
Publicizing WYO events and assisting with outreach efforts among peers, as well as planning and implementation of youth fundraising efforts
Assisting at special events (i.e. emceeing, vending, and clean-up at concerts),
Generating ideas and helping to plan for future in-house programs, social service opportunities and trips that appeal to their specific interests,
Serving as a liaison to the Board of Directors when necessary
We are always looking for creative and energetic teens to help us plan concerts, open mics, art expos, service projects (including the summer service trip), fundraising events, and much more!
