Who We Are
The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a Youth-Led organisation based in Haringey It was created to support young people aged 13 to 25 years old from Haringey to influence decisions in the local area, giving us a platform where we can create change, for ourselves and our community.
How we support you!
And why you should get involved!
Learn New Skills
Over the course of the program, you will learn a variety of skills. We have partnered up with some great organisations to help you learn skills in Leadership, Research, Entrepreneurship and Digital Skills. You will also learn skills that may come in handy in your life, like First Aid, Financial Literacy and Teamwork.
Gain Work Experience
Build your CV, and get paid for creating a change in your area. A lot of the work that you will be doing will involve working with other young people. You will organise educational events, conduct research and focus groups, consult organisations in the borough on how they can make their services better for young people and speak up for your community!
Join a team of change makers!
It is really tough to try and navigate life by yourself. So many things will happen that we will have no idea how to solve or work through. But, having someone there to talk to and work things out with can be a big help. We have mentors and youth workers from Haringey that could be there for you and help you figure out your next move and support you with it.
Go on Social Trips
We try our best to treat our team like a family, and what is a family that doesn't do cool things together? We have trips to Nando's when we are feeling cheeky, Go-Karting when we feel competitive, GoApe when we need an adrenaline boost, or out of London when we need some time away from the big city. We can't wait to have you join the family.
