The myHealth Youth Advisory Board is made up of a diverse group of young people ages 15-18 who represent myHealth in their schools and communities and are interested in teen health and leadership opportunities.
We believe strongly in youth development and empowerment, and we think this is a great opportunity for young people to be leaders. Some activities that YAB members participate in include: being trained to provide peer education, investigating community needs, promoting awareness of myHealth in the community, and planning and implementing special projects.
YAB members give vital input and feedback on the programs and clinic at myHealth, are trained to provide education to classmates, friends and peers, represent myHealth at community events, help raise awareness and funds for myHealth and volunteer within the local community.
Applications are accepted year-round, but interviews for and admission into YAB occurs only once per year, in the summer. If you would like to apply or just have some questions, contact our health educator, Emily McDowell:
