Join our Youth Advisory Board in Central Ohio to learn leadership skills.
YOUTH TO YOUTH was founded in 1982 in Columbus, Ohio, as a community-based drug prevention and youth leadership program focusing primarily on middle school and high school students. The goal of its many projects is harnessing the powerful influence of peer pressure—making it a positive force that encourages young people to live free of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
Youth Advisory Board (YAB) serves many purposes in Central Ohio. YAB works to help promote Youth to Youth’s mission and educate their peers on the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. YAB teens serve as a link between the youth, their schools and the community. YAB is a place for Central Ohio teens to express ideas and opinions while building their leadership skills.
Youth to Youth offers tremendous leadership opportunities for high school students and the adults who work with them. Our one-of-a-kind conference experience, led by trained teens alongside adults, is the training that groups across the country count on annually to serve as a vital catalyst to initiate or improve their youth prevention programming.
