The HandsOn Twin Cities Youth Advisory Board is a wonderful experience that every student should try to take advantage of during middle school and high school. I was a part of the board for two years and from my own experiences, I can honestly say how beneficial it was for me. It has provided me with invaluable contacts within Minnesota. Not only have I gained long lasting relationships with other teenagers and volunteers, but I was also exposed to many non-profits and volunteer events within the metro area. It was a perfect way to stay involved and active with volunteering. Finally, I enjoyed my time on the youth board so much that I am now a part of the Board of Directors for HandsOn Twin Cities. This is a fantastic organization and an opportunity that you definitely shouldn’t miss out on!
