In 2007 I co-authored a book with Youth On Board out of Boston called “15 Points To Successfully Involving Young People In Decision-Making.” In that book there is a table (pp 113-114) that provides a state-by-state analysis of the laws that effect youth involvement on boards. Eight of 50 US states disallow people under 18 from being on their boards of directors. In the other 42 states there is no specific age for directors specified in state law. Nine different states disallow young people from incorporating nonprofit organizations.
