Newsletter of the Ferguson Youth Initiative * August 2012 Edition * Ferguson, MO

Featured Event - Ferguson Youth Advisory Board

Calling All Youth - We know you have ideas of what you want to see go on in your neighborhood. The Ferguson Youth Advisory Board (FYAB) gives you the chance to voice those ideas and help make your community better.

You must be a Ferguson resident between 8th & 12th grades to be on FYAB.  In addition to bettering the Ferguson Community for youth, you will take part in 'design thinking' project - trust us, it is beyond exciting - AND board members will be eligible to receive one of three scholarships / stipends (meaning MONEY) at the end of this 2012-2013 term.   


To learn more about FYAB and for an application, click here.  Deadline is Sept 10.
