The Pennsylvania Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is comprised of current and former substitute care youth ages 16-21. Youth leaders on the YAB educate, advocate, and form partnerships to create positive change in the substitute care system.
The YAB is funded by the PA Department of Public Welfare, Office of Children, Youth and Families and is supported by the University of Pittsburgh, PA Child Welfare Resource Center.
