Hey, Young Riders! Would you like to have a say in what activities Area II develops this year? For 2023 we will be re-establishing the Young Rider Youth Council for Area 2.  The YR Youth Council will:

1.  Define the future activities for the Area 2 YR Program.
2.  Communications/Marketing of Program Activities and Success
3.  Actively engage in the Fundraising and other YR Support activities
1.  Young Rider Program Member enthusiastic to support the YR MIssion
2.  Time commitment 6-8 volunteer hours per quarter (every 3 months)
This is a GREAT thing to have on your resume, and for those who are considering applications for any national level YR program, being an active Council Member shows interest and commitment! Please send Chris Donovan your interest and any questions.
