YAB (Youth Advisory Board) all-stars!
A team for myHealth for Teens & Young Adults
"YAB (Youth Advisory Board) all-stars!" a team to help myHealth finish off their 40th year of helping teens with a bang!
Our team is composed of all current members of the myHealth Youth Advisory Board, as well as any YAB alums who wish to join. myHealth for Teens and Young Adults is an organization that provides low or no cost medical care, reproductive care, mental health care, and education, for any young person age 12-23 in Hennepin, Carver and Scott counties. The Youth Advisory Board is a group of young people from across myHealth's service area, who come together and volunteer their time to make sure that our clinics and educational services are truly delivered with young people in mind! Our YAB members, all juniors and seniors in high school, help guide decisions made by myHealth, give a youth perspective on educational materials, decor, staffing, and all aspects of the day to day workings of our organization. In addition, we make sure that people in the community know how awesome teens and young adults can be, by volunteering with other community organizations, on behalf of myHealth.
Each of us volunteers for different reasons, whether it is to spend time with teens from across the metro area, because we truly believe in the mission of myHealth and their goal to help all teens and young adults be both well and well informed, because we have seen first hand how myHealth helps the community, or our friends, or us, or because we want to make a difference and have our voice heard, and being a part of myHealth's Youth Advisory Board lets us do that.
