The Triangle Nonprofit and Volunteer Leadership Center

student Action Board

The Student Action Board (SAB) is a leadership training program that combines reflection and service to prepare participants to have a significant positive impact on their community.

Working as a team, SAB participants evaluate community needs, choose a focus area, organize service/learning projects related to the focus area and advocate for change. Along the way students learn about their own leadership style, develop effective meeting techniques, and gain experience managing a project.

Students in grades 10-12 who have participated in one of the center’s  youth programs (Mayor’s Award, Commissioners’ Award, IMPACT Camp or the Civic Engagement Leadership Institute) are invited to apply.

Applications are due September 18, 2021. SAB members attend monthly planning and development meetings, organize and participate in service/learning projects throughout the school year.

Students will be notified by the October 1 if they have been accepted into the program.

There is small fee to participate in this program. Financial Assistance is available for students if needed.

Thoughtfully designed civic engagement activities yield greater learning and increased graduation rates in K–12 schools, community colleges, and four-year institutions.

Students selected for the Student Action Board, which was formed in 1994 as part of the Young Volunteers in Action, create and manage their own service projects throughout the school year.
