The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) supports New Yorkers For Children by shaping public awareness and perceptions of children and youth in foster care, and inspiring peers to become advocates in their communities. YAB collaborates with other programs for positive youth development, education, and professional success, while inspiring New Yorkers of all ages and walks of life to strengthen society.

YAB is supported through the generous sponsorship of the Himan Brown Charitable Trust and Tuck’s R.U.S.H. for Literacy.

YAB is open for membership to current and former foster care youth between the ages of 17 and 25. For more information about YAB and upcoming initiatives, email
