What is Project Youth?

This event is on March 29th, 2024. If you are interested in helping lead the event, please contact one of the program directors!

Volunteers inspire fifth and sixth-grade students from Title I schools to achieve a higher education by giving them a glimpse of campus life. At this annual event, volunteers lead these young students on a campus tour and to breakout sessions that teach them about some of the amazing opportunities for learning ahead of them. Then, all of the students and volunteers will gather together for a "Power Rally," which is a high-energy, closing assembly. Our event for this coming school year is scheduled for March 29, 2024.

How do I get involved?

If you are interested in planning the event, please apply to be a Program Director for Project Youth at this link. Time commitment is flexible! Contact the current program directors by phone or email projectyouth@byu.edu with any questions.

Volunteer Commitment:

Event planning happens throughout Fall and Winter semesters. A few volunteers involved in planning commit 1-3 hours weekly during Fall and Winter semesters at any time during the week.

Volunteer group leaders will need to attend a one hour training and have availability during the day of the event from 8:00 a.m-12:20 p.m. We need lots of group leaders--invite a friend to volunteer with you!

Training:

Please complete this mandatory 25 minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with the children.
