|Youth Board (YB) Registration/Selections
The Youth Board (YB) is a platform where thirty-two youth (9th-11th graders) come together to create a team of leaders who train over the year via various service projects (from planning to execution), community cafes, training and workshops to evolve into YLP mentors who then plan a 5 day-4 night camp (Camp Bharat) for 220+ children in the Indian community of Greater Seattle. The YB program offers ongoing leadership opportunities to all its members. In Summer of 2020, this group led the planning and execution of YLP Mental Health Summit. YBs worked with YCs and YOs to plan this event with over 200 in attendance.
