Loveisrespect is looking for new members to join our National Youth Advisory Board (NYAB)! So your first question probably is: what is the board? The NYAB consists of individuals between 12-24 years old that work together to stop teen dating abuse. Members meet over the phone to learn about activism, discuss projects they’re doing in their community and plan events. They are all spreading the word about teen dating violence and how to stop it.
If you work to stop violence in your school or society, the NYAB is a place for you! Come connect and work with like-minded people nationwide — apply online.
Requirements include attending an annual conference and monthly conference calls. In addition, NYAB members are expected to complete at least 20 community-service hours a year on preventing dating abuse. You can organize your own event, lead the ones the board comes up with or participate with a local group addressing the issue. In addition, there are also action items after the monthly calls.
But don’t take our word for it. Here are some quotes from current NYAB leadership:
