Youth Board

Mission Statement: The California School-Based Health Alliance Youth Board aims to amplify youth engagement and access to school-based health through leadership, advocacy, and empowerment throughout California.

In 2007, five young people formed the California School-Based Health Alliance (CSHA) Youth Board, a group of school health advocates from across California committed to the advancement of school-based health care, empowered by their lived experiences with adolescent health, school health, and community roots.

Today, our Youth Board members continue to advocate for youth’s voice to be integrated into CSHA’s mission, projects, and building further opportunities for School-Based Health Centers to strengthen their commitment to implementing youth leadership, voice, and experiences.
