YOUTH ADVISORY BOARD

 

TeamChild and Disability Rights Washington (DRW) are partnering to build a Youth Advisory Board to help guide our work in legal services and policy advocacy. We are seeking young people, 14-24 years old, who will be compensated for sharing their lived experience and expertise in this role.

Have you experienced or been impacted by any of these systems?

  • Juvenile Court Involvement
  • Barriers to accessing education
  • Foster Care
  • Mental / Behavioral Health Care services
  • Housing Instability or Homelessness
  • Navigating immigration issues
  • Difficulty accessing appropriate services or supports to accommodate a disability

Help us prioritize and plan for how to better provide legal services for youth and advocate for policy changes, especially in the area of education. This is a hands-on opportunity to create self-help materials and develop training that meets the needs of youth and young adults in communities throughout Washington State.

Young people with lived experience, young people from Black and brown communities, young people with disabilities, and young folx from the LGBTQIA community are particularly urged to apply.
