Who We Are
The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a Community Interest Company, run by young people, for young people. It was created to support young people aged 13 to 25 years old from Haringey in influencing 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 gain Accredited Training in Leadership, Research and Peer Mentoring. You will also learn skills that may come in handy in your life, like First Aid, Conflict Management, Cooking, or starting a business. We can't wait for you to try these out!
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!
Have your own Support Network
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.
