The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is comprised of Larkin Street Youth Services clients who are dedicated toward advocacy and leadership. They serve as a unified voice representing the Larkin Street client population by acting as liaisons between clients and staff. The board meets weekly to work on projects that support a positive client experience at Larkin Street and to participate in community events that directly impact San Francisco youth.
YAB’s Mission Statement:
“To better the lives of our fellow clients, to promote transparency and youth involvement in Larkin Street’s administrative policies, to help overcome common myths surrounding marginally housed youth, and to assist other youth in identifying and overcoming barriers to exit street life.”
