About our National Youth Advisory Board

Our National Youth Advisory Board (NYAB) consists of 25 hardworking and dedicated individuals, ranging in age from 13 to 24. Middle school, high school and college students, as well as young people not in school, work together to represent youth of all ages, backgrounds and communities. The NYAB is possible thanks to the generous contribution of mark, A Division of Avon Products.

NYAB is busy showing teens and young adults that they DO have a voice and CAN take action. This board provides insights and feedback on every aspect of loveisrespect.org -- from its design to how it’s marketed. Working both online and off, NYAB members write blogs for the site, host awareness-raising events across the country, meets monthly and generally take steps forward toward youth empowerment, awareness and success!

In February, the NYAB hosts Respect Week, a chance for young people to stand together nationwide and promote healthy relationships. Learn more!
