Have fun while making a difference! 

Join YAB.

What is YAB? It’s the MoveFwd Youth Advisory Board.

“YABers” raise awareness of MoveFwd services with their peers through articles, posters, flyers and organizing fun events like the annual Battle of the Bands.

MoveFwd seeks four or five enthusiastic students interested in community service from the following high schools: Eden Prairie, Hopkins, Main Street School of Performing Arts, St. Louis Park and Wayzata. The average time commitment is 3 hours per month.

Responsibilities include:

  • Organize the annual Battle of the Bands competition.
  • Work with a graphic designer to create posters and information to distribute to local schools and businesses.
  • Help find speaking opportunities for MoveFwd counselors (e.g. schools, church groups, etc.).
  • Use school newspapers, announcements, Facebook and other media to help your classmates learn about MoveFwd.
  • Help MoveFwd staff stay up-to-date with what it’s like to be a teen!
