Youth Advisory Board
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation Youth Advisory Board is one of the only youth-led advisory groups in the country focused on
childhood obesity issues. The 21 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. Board members 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 board member is responsible for initiating healthy
changes in their own neighborhoods and school districts by engaging in
service-learning programs in their communities.
