Youth Advisory Board 2017-18
The Girl Up Youth Advisory Board is a group of high school students from various backgrounds living in the Seattle area who are committed to making a difference in their community as well as on a national level. YAB will meet twice a month (First & Third Monday from 4-6pm) with our ally, Mentor / Case Manager, Channon Agor at the South Seattle office.
During meetings, members are expected to participate in discussions, share ideas and help us plan and implement youth-led events and service learning projects. Activities include but are not limited to organizing the GiveBIG, Adopt Her Family and #GivingTuesday campaigns, host quarterly social justice and fundraising events and attend We Day! In addition all members will take part in the annual week-long College Tours Road Trip and Girl Up Leadership Summit in Washington, DC in June!
By participating in the YAB, members gain community service credit needed for graduation, development in leadership, advocacy and social justice skills and the chance to collaborate with peers from all over Seattle… It also doesn’t look too bad on a college application!
