Sessions will take place on the Indiana Futsol Court at Arsenal Tech High School (1500 E Michigan St. Indianapolis, IN 46202).  This field is not grass or turf, so no cleats are necessary.

         Power in Youth Junior Board Applications Now Open
Do you know a student who has a passion for service and desires to develop their leadership skills? The Joseph Maley Foundation’s Power in Youth program encompasses three facets designed to support and advocate for participants in high school, college and beyond. One of these, the Junior Board of Directors, supports our mission through leadership opportunities for high school students who value unconditional acceptance and service. Junior Board members participate in leadership programs, direct service to children through the Joseph Maley Foundation and other non-profit organizations, and fundraising. Applications are currently being accepted for students currently enrolled in grades 8 – 12 and can be completed online.
