There's still time to give a deserving young person the chance to serve in a national leadership role. We've extended the deadline for applications to our National Youth Advisory Board (NYAB) until July 15th. Download the 2011-2012 application online today at tacklehunger.org/nyab.
Each year Souper Bowl of Caring selects 12 high school students (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors) from across the nation to serve in a leadership position, learning about service and philanthropy while lending their voices to our mission and leading their own communities in the fight against hunger.
NYAB requirements include attending two mandatory meetings organized by Souper Bowl of Caring (dates to be determined). The youth also serve as spokespeople for the media and act as ambassadors for the organization, sharing Souper Bowl of Caring with others in their communities while offering their ideas on ways to continue growing the movement.
"For over two decades, young people have been inspiring the country to leverage the energy of the Super Bowl to help people in need through Souper Bowl of Caring, raising more than $80 million for soup kitchens, food banks and other charities," said Tracy Bender, President and CEO of Souper Bowl of Caring. "The NYAB gives deserving young people opportunities for decision-making, leadership, travel and training while making a difference in their local communities and the nation. I hope more young people will be inspired to apply for this extraordinary chance for service and personal development."
"I am proud to be fighting poverty and hunger nationwide through Souper Bowl of Caring," said Katlyn Riggins, 10th grader, Carrollton, TX. "This organization lets me fulfill my passion for helping people in need."
