Have you been wanting to improve or develop leadership skills that will help you move forward with your job, education or future career? Do you want to give back to the community? If you said yes, check out the Youth Advisory Board (YAB)! YAB is a FREE group of 7th -12th graders in the Forest Lake School District and Chisago County that do just that.


We are currently accepting registrations for youth to join YAB starting Monday, September 25th! YAB has monthly meetings on Monday evenings. At each meeting, we work on a leadership activity; discuss a specific topic, such as: public speaking, organization, or career/college readiness; and talk about ways we can volunteer in the community! Oh, and we have pizza.


Pre-registration is required to attend and a parent/guardian needs to attend the first meeting. Space is limited, so sign up right away! You can download a registration form at or pick one up at Lakes Center for Youth & Families (20 Lake St N, Suite 103, Forest Lake). If you would like more information, contact Jenna at 651-464-3685 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
