Join Our Team



Board Member

As a member of the SYI Board, you will join a passionate group of leaders who make our mission possible: helping youth move the big ideas from their hearts and heads onto the page. At meetings, we collaborate, problem solve, brainstorm and make strategic decisions. We ask board members to commit to attend 70-100% of our bi-monthly meetings. Beyond meetings, board members support SYI with gifts of knowledge, time, and financial contribution. Read More.
