The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a leadership and advocacy board comprised of Larkin Street young people dedicated to informing our direct service and systems change work through paid four-and-a-half-month appointments. YAB’s goal is to promote transparency and youth leadership in decision-making, address common myths surrounding marginally housed and homeless youth, assist youth in identifying and overcoming barriers to exiting street life, and empower leaders to advocate.
YAB prepares young people to pursue careers in public relations, politics, social justice, and public policy. YAB has also been a critical source of income for those who serve on the Board.
YAB ensures that diverse youth expertise drives agency efforts to improve policies and service delivery. In addition to work within Larkin Street, the Board participates in city and state-wide initiatives related to social justice issues impacting youth of color and LGBTQ+ youth.
