WOW’s Youth Voices Advisory Board (YVAB) was created to give children an opportunity to create and discuss workshop topics that benefit them. Our Youth Voices Advisory Board provides an opportunity for children and young people to contribute to the work of Workshops on Wheels. In order to impact youth and their community, we must bring them to the table.
Members of the Youth Voices Advisory Board serve on the board for a one year term. If members wpuld like to stay longer they may.
The WOW Youth Voices Advisory Board will be offered four personal development and college preparation workshops per term. The topics we will discuss this year include the following: Public Speaking Tips, College Application Assistance, Resume Writing, and Interview Skills
