BYI helps young people make ideas happen.
We did it with a group of kids and community volunteers that launched the BOB bus.
We've done it with our all-ages concerts, dances, DJ battles, ski film premieres, clothing swaps, and other youth-produced programs.
This past spring we helped a group of Bozeman High freshman put on a successful skateboarding contest.
Last week, we celebrated the end of our fifth season of young artists selling their work through the Youth Art Walk program.
Those are just a few of the ideas we helped young people turn into reality.
But we believe there are more ideas out there and more young people who could gain independence and experience from hands-on-learning.
So we're excited to announce an important new step in our commitment to helping young people do things they imagine.
BYI is partnering with Foundant Technologies and the Bozeman Area Community Foundation to invite young people ages 14-18 to apply for paid internships and volunteer positions with a group that will judge youth project proposals and award $10,000 in grant funds.
Thanks to this donation from Foundant Technologies and expert support from the Community Foundation, we have an opportunity to help more young people learn social, occupational, creative, and other skills through working on real-world projects developed from their ideas.
We're asking for help from our friends and supporters to help get this message out to the people we all know who could bring great things to and take them away from this opportunity.

Thank you for helping us cast the net as widely as possible in searching the right young people for this job.
