The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a body of young people from the United States striving to vocalize the needs of youth by serving as ambassadors to Plan International USA. We strive to create and nurture a network between Plan’s international youth and organizational decision-makers in order to reinforce Plan’s mission of empowering children across the world. Our role ranges from participating in discussions with the Board of Directors to collaborating with other Plan Federation members’ youth advisory groups, and growing a network of youth across the U.S. dedicated to supporting the work of Plan.
We are a group of youth passionate about development, youth empowerment, and cross-cultural engagement; our ages range from 16 to 22 and we come from all corners of the United States.
