Youth Advocacy Board | 11/17/22

Happy Friday YAB! Attendance was a bit low for this meeting so we had to change up yesterday's agenda a little bit but we still got a lot done.


Announcements

  1. I am requesting that you guys join a meeting with the CES team this Tuesday so we can finalize the details of the cold weather gear drive! I will send a reminder and invite on Monday!

  2. Keep your Calendars open for December 9th! We will be presenting at the PED Community of Practice Meeting at 10 AM

I know this is a lot and I don’t expect you guys to keep track of all this I will continue to remind everyone of events and if you are ever curious about when things are happening you can see it all on the YAB Schedule on the website.



Main Topics

We discussed the possibility of adding Kristin Carmicheal to the January Core Team Meeting. An analysis of what it would take to complete a statewide expansion of the Landlord Collaboration Program has been funded. She wants to ask the Core Team some questions to assist with this process. The YAB members that were present yesterday thought this was a good idea but if anyone has any objections please let me know.

We had a Conversation about the beginning of the PSY conference. Initially I had planned for us to all exchange our notes from the breakout sessions but due to our attendance we adjusted. We all agreed that the land acknowledgement was super powerful and is something we would like to incorporate into our meetings. The keynote speaker was incredibly inspirational and if you attended the conference you are able to get a free copy of his book here: https://pointsourceyouth.bulkbooks.com/

I showed the Cold Weather Gear Drive Flyer/post template I created and everyone loved it! Once we fill it in with the details Lucy even offered to share it on the coalition’s list serve! I will show it again at the meeting on tuesday! I also informed the YAB that I made connections at a local radio station and once we have the details finalized they will help us advertise!

We spent the rest of the meeting going over the outline for our school presentation. We developed it alot and came up with a lot of ideas. I want you guys to feel free to continue developing it. I think we will need to have a separate meeting to wrap up the presentation.



As always I want to extend my appreciation and gratitude to you guys! You’re devotion and motivation makes me so immensely proud and I am loving the projects we are developing and I can’t thank you guys enough for the roles you are taking. If you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to reach out! Have a lovely weekend!
