Youth Frontiers

West Salem Youth Frontiers (YF) is a group of senior leaders dedicated to improving their school and community. Each spring, school staff nominate a small number of juniors based on their leadership skills or leadership potential to take charge during their senior year. These leaders, along with other local high school students, attend a leadership retreat facilitated by Minneapolis-based Youth Frontiers to better understand their responsibility.

A student-driven club, West Salem YF leaders annually identify areas of focus and implement courses of action. Since its inception in the 2015-2016 school year, West Salem YF has raised over $12,000 for the American Cancer Society with school-wide incentivized fundraisers. Wanting to help a neighboring community in need, West Salem YF raised over $3,000 for the De Soto Area School District and De Soto community after flooding ravaged the community in 2016.

West Salem YF is always looking for new areas of focus. If you have an idea, please contact advisor Ryan Nelson at nelson.ryan@wsalem.k12.wi.us
