2021/2022 Youth Advisory Board Member

What is the Youth Advisory Board? 

Our Youth Advisory Boards (YAB) allow young adults to weigh in directly on YI’s work and our strategies for engaging with young people. We have established Youth Advisory Boards in each location where we have an office (Denver, Chicago, LA, Houston, NYC, and the DMV). The YAB meets with staff four times a year, where we discuss what YI has accomplished since our last meeting, new campaigns we’re working on, and our plans for youth outreach going forward. No outside work is required, other than staying engaged with YI and coming prepared to talk about how we can make a difference! 

Why join the Youth Advisory Board? 

Joining the YAB gives you the opportunity to weigh in directly on how a youth-led organization is run. YI is focused on creating lasting change in health care, higher education, and jobs access policy, and getting involved in the YAB gives you an opportunity to directly impact our work in those areas, and ultimately influence policies that affect the everyday lives of young adults in your communities, states, and across the country. Additionally, getting involved in an advisory board is a great opportunity for leadership development, network expansion, facilitation and communication improvement, and many other personal and professional skills! You can put this position on a resume, and we can even write you a letter of recommendation for serving on the board. 

Who are we looking for? 

10-12 Young adults ages 16 through 34 located across the state of Colorado. We’re looking for enthusiastic leaders who are passionate about building youth power and advocacy for our generation. YAB members must be able to commit to attending our four quarterly meetings throughout the calendar years of 2021-2022, and being general ambassadors of YI events, training and other information.
