Youthrive Cabinet Application
The Youthrive Cabinet is a mentoring and leadership program, of 20 young people that engages youth leaders in meaningful projects and partnerships with adults. Our young leaders are Middle and High School aged 13-19; each from very diverse areas in the Twin Cities.
To be active leaders, youth must gain specific knowledge and skills as well as a caring attitude towards themselves, others, and their community. This group helps to build leadership and problem solving skills as well as a deeper understanding and respect among youth of diverse backgrounds among youth and adults.
At Youthrive we value the insight of all young people and feel that this program is a strong component in making youthrive successful and building peace.
