Youth Advisory Board Toolkit
Youth with mental health, emotional or behavioral needs can promote positive change when they are engaged in leadership opportunities that give them a chance to express their experiences and perspectives. A Youth Advisory Board can help youth develop self-advocacy skills and promote individual as well as team leadership to promote effective systems of care and support.
This Youth Advisory Board Toolkit is a prototype to help your organization or group benefit from the youth voice. The purpose of a youth board is to promote an authentic way for youth to engage with meaning.
The toolkit covers the following areas:
- Information about PACER’s Youth Advisory Board on Mental Health
- How to set up a Youth Advisory Board
- Sample Forms
