From August 1st until August 31st, The Set Me Free Project will be accepting applications for

our Youth Action and Advisory Board (YAAB). As a High School student, being a part of the

YAAB Board offers great opportunities to get experience with grant writing, develop leadership

skills, and even learning how nonprofit organizations work! We are looking for individuals who

are passionate about our goal of preventing human trafficking and willing to dedicate time to our

mission. The application process will begin by filling out the application linked below. After filling

out the application, a current YAAB member will contact each applicant about setting up a time

for an interview over Zoom. We will ask each applicant questions about themselves, as well as

why they believe they’re a good fit for our Board and why they are passionate about The Set Me

Free Project’s mission. The YAAB Board presents many opportunities to its members such as

creating and reforming educational content, planning events, and experiencing what running a

nonprofit organization is like. We hold our regular meetings over Zoom, thus making the board

accessible to people from many geographical locations. We are often very flexible with our

meeting times to ensure the most people can attend. We ask that if you apply, you are willing to

put in effort to attend meetings and add contributions to events and the organization as a whole.

The people at The Set Me Free Project are incredibly welcoming and fun to work with. We are a

family and confident that any applicant is sure to love this community. We’re so excited to meet

new potential members and encourage everyone who’s interested to apply!
