Youth Research Advisory Board (YRAB)

Who We Are

Youth Research Advisory Board (YRAB) The Youth Research Advisory Board (YRAB) is a diverse group of 15 to 26 years-old teens and young adults who meet monthly to offer a youth perspective to interested researchers and community partners about adolescent research.

Members provide a youth voice by providing feedback on how to engage young participants in research and to provide a unique perspective for researchers to communicate efficiently and transparently with youth participants.

YRAB provides an opportunity for members to gain an understanding of the research process and to develop their leadership skills.
