---------What is the Youth Advisory Board (YAB)?
The implementing partners of SHE SOARS are committed to meaningfully engage young people in the initiatives targeting them. Therefore, we see the need of creating a youth-led body that allows young people to lead as experts of their own realities. The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a body of young people within SHE SOARS that is meant to center the needs of youth from Kenya, Uganda and Zambia, by promoting meaningful youth engagement in the design, implementation and accountability of the project.
If you are a young person from Kenya, Zambia, and Uganda between 18-28 years old, you are eligible to apply! Six young people will be selected for the Youth Advisory Board. The YAB is a space designed by young people for young people, so we ask that those who choose to participate respect the age limits.
**Only young people from Kenya, Zambia, and Uganda are eligible.**
