Youth Advisory Board

We strive to connect youth with Plan’s global mission to unleash the power of girls.

The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a body of young people from the U.S. striving to vocalize the needs of youth by serving as ambassadors to Plan International USA.

By expanding the network of young activists in the U.S. who support Plan’s work, designing youth advocacy programs and working alongside our leadership, we are committed to advancing diverse perspectives in the development community.

We are a group of young people passionate about international development, youth empowerment and cross-cultural engagement; our ages range from 16-22 and we come from all corners of the U.S.

Learn more about joining the YAB today!
