The NSUW Youth Board is a student-run committee based in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. It was founded more than 20 years ago to help manage donations made in memory of Jean Youngs Baddeley, former United Way president of Lake Forest/Lake Bluff. Teachers nominate students, ages 12 to 18, for the Youth Board.
