Join our Youth Advisory Board
Here’s your opportunity to change the world!
What does the youth advisory board (YAB) do?
Our YAB is a truly amazing group of diverse high school girls from across Connecticut who are passionate about female empowerment and gender equality. Each month, we provide a specific mission that provides an opportunity for student-led social change. Interested? Read on!
How do the missions work?
You will receive a monthly mission at our YAB meeting (first Saturday of each month); we will email you the mission if you cannot attend the meeting. (9 missions Sept - May)
All of our missions involve taking action and speaking up for girls/women using social media (yours and/or ours). Make sure to tag us so you get credit! @goLiveGirl
