WHO WE ARE

The 30-member board will be responsible for helping The Allstate Foundation advance its strategy for empowering youth to serve and improve communities across the country. The board will achieve this mission by developing and participating in youth-led service initiatives, planning and launching national youth engagement efforts (including summits and days of service), advising The Allstate Foundation and its partners on pressing youth issues, and more.


Key responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement program content (including learning objectives and a virtual curriculum), leveraging experience in creating and leading student programs.
  • Serve as the primary point of contact and mentor for Youth Action Board members, providing personalized guidance on their Youth Action Board work and other changemaking initiatives they lead.
  • Support youth voice, agency, and leadership in shaping Campus Compact and The Allstate Foundation initiatives by organizing monthly Youth Action Board meetings, supplemental trainings, and other opportunities. 
  • Plan and execute virtual and in-person youth-focused events, meetings, days of service, webinars, and conferences by contributing to program design and leading logistical execution (e.g., space, tech, speakers, etc.).
  • Develop and coordinate mentorship opportunities for Youth Action Board members by recruiting foundation employees, Campus Compact employees, and other stakeholders to serve as professional mentors for Youth Action Board members.
  • Support the Youth Action Board in distributing grants to youth changemakers across the country by coordinating and executing a youth-led grantmaking process including all related administrative tasks. 
  • Lead essential communications, logistics, and planning for new Youth Action Board programming. 
  • Advance partnerships and collaborations with other entities and initiatives that connect and engage students from diverse communities.
  • Support program evaluation and assessment through data collection and assessment activities. 
  • Support the organization-wide efforts to integrate and deepen diversity, equity, and inclusion. 
  • Other duties as assigned.
