Join the Teen Connect Youth Advisory Board


The Teen Connect Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is expanding! Want to make a difference and have your voice be heard? Don’t miss your chance to join us for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. Apply online by June 13th.


We're seeking to recruit a diverse group of high school students across Hillsborough County Public Schools. This joint effort between the school district and Healthy Start Coalition of Hillsborough County provides students with a great opportunity to make an impact in the community while building their resume and gaining community service hours.

We're looking for students who are interested in raising awareness about important health issues impacting teens by developing youth-led marketing campaigns and providing feedback to healthcare providers and community partners. Through past projects, the YAB has helped elevate the youth voice by writing blog posts on topics ranging from sexual health, LGBTQ+ and mental health resources, as well as launched an online social media campaign to educate teens on the importance of STD testing and how to access sexual health services.


Learn more about what we do at www.TeenConnectTampaBay.org/youth-advisory-board and by following us on Instagram @Teenconnecttampa.


We hope you'll join us! For any questions, please contact Danielle Lewald, Adolescent Health Resource Coordinator at 813-440-9595 or dlewald@hstart.org.
