Youth Advisory Board

The Youth Advisory Board was established to actively involve youth in the development of programs at Traverse Place and REACH. The Board serves as a constructive voice for conversation and information exchange between the management of Traverse Place and REACH and youth. The Board provides the opportunity for youth to share their ideas, identify problems and obstacles to success and suggest helpful ways to resolve youth issues.

The Youth Advisory Board is made up of 3-9 current and former youth from REACH, Traverse Place and Street Outreach.

The Board consists of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Secretary. Officers serve a term of one year with elections held each year in September.
