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 High Schoolers, each from very diverse areas in the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, and beyond.
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 through a youth/adult partnership.
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.
