Meet Our Youth Advisory Board Members
I joined the youth advisory board because I wanted to help others and meet new people. I like being a member because the team is great and I love sharing my new ideas.
I joined YAB because I want to make a change in the world somehow. Even if it’s something small. I believe that even a small change can be impactful and I think YAB is a great way to let my voice be heard and try to make a change. My Favorite thing about YAB is that everyone is super kind a supportive.
I first joined GRP because when I was 8 I went to a Girls Are Powerful meeting and I felt very inspired by what GRP was offering to me. My favorite part about being on the Youth Advisory Board is seeing other people my age being passionate about the same thing I am passionate about.
I joined Girls Are Powerful to get out of my comfort zone and to make new friends. My favorite part about being a youth advisory board member is having a safe place to share my ideas.
I first joined GRP because my mom said I signed you up for a journaling program with GRP! And I went and I liked it everyone was also really nice, and caring. My favorite part of being a YAB member is planning things/gatherings. I also really like taking these opportunities to try new things and YAB is really fun with everyone!
One reason why I joined Girls Are Powerful is because I found a strong need for girls’ advocacy and taking action for what they believe in.
I joined the youth advisory board to meet like-minded girls to collaborate with to create projects that would benefit the GRP community and beyond. My favorite thing about being a member is working with so many welcoming, kind, creative, and smart girls that inspire me to be a better person.
I joined Girls are Powerful because it gave me a good healthy ‘how you doin?’ check way back when quarantine first started. I’m glad I am on this team now because I get to tell everyone all about how I’m on a supergirl power team.
I joined the YAB because I love the mission and values at Girls Are Powerful and I wanted to get involved more. I love the community we have in the YAB! It is such a positive and supportive community of wonderful ladies that are such a joy to work with!
I joined Girls Are Powerful because I think it has a great message and other girls need to hear it. My favorite part of being a YAB member is creating and coming up with ideas for programs.
Current Activities & Projects
SPRING ’21 INITIATIVES
Girl Talk events were created to reimagine the idea of traditional girl talk and shift it towards a more informational and discussion-based conversation. Each Girl Talk event is going to exemplify a specific value that the Youth Advisory Board identifies with which are creativity, courage, commitment, conscientiousness, and the two we are discussing today: compassion and confidence.
