Board members are legally responsible for all of the organization's actions. Minors can not do this. And YOU cannot start a nonprofit as minor either.

Try www.boardsource.org. Search on "starting a nonprofit." They have lots of books and resources on it. You have to be 18 to sign a contract or to start paperwork with the IRS. Your board members can be any age. However, frankly, you don't need to start a nonprofit, what you want to do is join one that is already working on the issues you want to work on. They will welcome board members of any age. You can interview with several to find one to your liking.
