YAB members tackle a range of social problems that concern youth from alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse prevention, stress relief, and peer support for students. Current projects promote youth peer-mentoring, self-care and evidence-based training to promote mental wellness and change the culture of their schools and communities.
In the 2018-19 school year, YAB hosted a county-wide mental health summit where they helped 70 high schoolers connect with local resources and self-care opportunities.
YAB is a program and a philosophy that recognizes youth as valuable resources in our community and empowers them as equal community partners to bring about positive community change.
