The San Francisco Public Library Board of Advising Youth (BAY) is a dynamic council of high school and early college-age student interns who are charged with designing and planning programs for The Mix at SFPL, as well as The Mix on the Move. The group is represented by teens from all San Francisco neighborhoods who come to the BAY from different educational institutions and out-of-school time programs. Placement is arranged via a formal application process as positions become available. The group works weekly and at special events, with a project-based approach to design and program planning for The Mix at SFPL. New applicants should be in 9th or 10th grade.
