The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a youth led initiative of Project SYNCERE.
The mission of Project SYNCERE (PS) is to increase the number of minority, female, and under-served students pursuing careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Inherent to our mission is the desire to ensure that youth in our programs are engaged in authentic learning activities and experiences that are preparing them for a global market and technology driven world.
The Youth Advisory Board fills this need by providing opportunity for youth to:
- Develop and hone their leadership and interpersonal skills,
- Gain additional academic and career mentoring, and
- Have voice and value in the conversations that are determining programs and services being created for them and their peers.
