Youth Advisory Board


GirlVentures’ Youth Advisory Board is made up of young leaders with opinions, ideas and a commitment to GirlVentures. All participants must be in 10th-12th grade and have previously completed another GirlVentures course.

You will be part of a fun-loving group of high school students and mentors who are dedicated to supporting GirlVentures’ work and vision. You will laugh, learn, and grow, develop yourself as a speaker, facilitator, teacher and mentor.
