Our Youth Advisory Board is one of the only youth-led advisory groups in the country focused on childhood obesity issues. Our current 20 youth leaders play an integral role in advising and providing a youth perspective to the Alliance as we strive to encourage young people across the nation to make healthy choices. Youth Ambassadors also serve as national spokespeople for the Alliance speaking at local and national events, interviewing with journalists and health-education experts, engaging with community leaders, and addressing their peers.
In addition to their role as advisors and spokespeople for the organization, a cornerstone of the Youth Advisory Board is their commitment to service-learning. Each Youth Ambassador is responsible for initiating healthy changes in their own neighborhoods and school districts by engaging in service-learning programs in their communities.
