Youth Advisory Board Member
Rachel has more than 10 years of experience working with Plan. As an elementary school student, Rachel joined Plan’s Youth United for Global Action and Awareness (YUGA) network, educating her community about global challenges and encouraging them to find solutions.
She continued her work through middle and high school, creating YUGA chapters at her schools, attending YUGA leadership camps, and serving on the group’s steering committee.
In 2012, Rachel joined Plan’s Youth Advisory Board (YAB), where she expanded her knowledge of Plan’s work and fulfilled her desire to work with others who shared her passion for youth development and empowerment. As the head of the board’s Internal Engagement Committee, Rachel works with Plan staff in various departments.
Rachel is passionate about Plan’s work because the organization works with children and their communities and empowers them to foster and develop sustainable change.
Rachel believes that the YAB demonstrates that youth can and should have the power to make decisions and implement change within the organization. Rachel also believes that when girls are empowered through education, they are able to uplift their communities and break the cycle of poverty. Rachel’s extensive knowledge of Plan and her passion for international development and children’s rights makes her a great fit.
