Applications are now available for the State Farm Youth Advisory Board at
www.statefarmyab.com/apply.php.  The State Farm Youth Advisory Board is one
of the nations' most exciting opportunities for youth empowerment and
development.  The board is comprised of a diverse group of 30 young people,
ages 17-20, chosen from each of 12 U.S. State Farm zones which cover all
states within the United States, and one State Farm Canadian zone (Alberta,
New Brunswick, or Ontario provinces only).  Three at-large members are
nominated by State Farm's national service-learning partners.  Scholarships
are provided to Youth Advisory Board members.   


Members of this Board play an important leadership role in creating and
overseeing a $5 million a year signature service-learning initiative which
addresses pressing issues of importance to youth, State Farm, and
communities across North America.  The Youth Board collectively helps
identify these issues; develops the grant making processes for catalyzing
large-scale, student-driven service-learning projects that systemically
address the issues; selects the programs to receive grants; provides
technical assistance and oversight to site grantees; and assists with the
communications and outreach of the initiative.  The Youth Board interacts
with senior State Farm leaders in presenting and defending an analysis of
their grant-making decisions.   

Application must be postmarked March 31, 2009
