The organization has experimented with a youth board for the past year and is now in a position to expand that board and provide a platform for North County youth leaders to work together, regardless of the school they attend or the area in which they live.

These youth leaders should be interested in giving back to their communities through service and time committed. “We want to empower our local youth as we invest in our communities,”‘ said Becky Gray, the executive director
of the organization, “It is equally important to educate our youth leaders about philanthropy and the benefits of our collaborative gifting and accountability process.”
