Who/what is a YAB?
We are a group of teenagers from the metro area that, who connect with our peers, listen to their needs and issues to help the myHealth team better understand how to provide the information and resources to address their needs. We understand how hard it is for someone our age to take that first step in the door to a clinic and help the myHealth staff make their experience a good one, where they feel welcomed and safe. In addition to being working to make sure our peers know what services myHealth has to offer, we plan fundraisers and host events for teens that are in safe alcohol free venues.
This year our goal is a big one! We really want to say thank you to myHealth for giving us this opportunity to be leaders in our community. Help us help myHealth meet that $25,000 Challenge by raising $1,600.
| The $25,000 Challenge
