Youth Advisory Board

Make An Impact


The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is comprised of eighth grade and high school students from the Lee's Summit area who are empowered to provide activities and advocacy to promote a healthy and youth friendly community. Serving on this board will help students develop leadership skills and have a positive impact on peers, family and community surrounding youth substance use and teen violence. We hope to provide a safe space for students to be themselves, increase confidence and skills to improve connections throughout their life. We ask that YAB members choose to live a substance free lifestyle.
