Each year Souper Bowl of Caring selects a group of 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.
National Youth Advisory Board requirements include attending two mandatory conferences organized by Souper Bowl of Caring at its headquarters in Houston, TX. 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 ideas on ways to continue growing the movement.
Daigneault believes having a National Youth Advisory Board just makes sense for the organization. Souper Bowl of Caring was led 25 years ago by one, small group of young people and the National Youth Advisory Board allows this tradition to continue."This is a once in lifetime opportunity for students to be part of a organization that has raised more than $110 million for charities across the country," said Melissa Daigneault, Communications and Food Drive Coordinator for Souper Bowl of Caring. "Students will have opportunities for decision-making, leadership, travel and training."
