Our Advisory Board is comprised of individuals with experience in many sectors, and our Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is comprised of high school students.

Our Advisory Board is comprised of individuals with expertise in many sectors, who share their talents and energy with YAX. Our legal board is the Board of our fiscal sponsor, Tides Center. Tides’ Board is not involved in the organizational or program development of YAX. Our Advisory Board functions as a full working board except in the case of legal functions. To learn more about joining the Advisory Board, please contact Reed at reedATyouthartexchange.org.

Our Youth Advisory Board (YAB) demonstrates the highest rung on the ladder of leadership at the organization and is a group of high school students who help create, lead, and support the programs. YAB members have been program participants, interns, classroom and teaching assistants- or those who have just stood out as exceptional- and have aspired to inform program development, implementation, and strategic initiatives. YAB members select staff and faculty members, evaluate programs, and provide the youth perspective to our work. YAB members write grants, plan events, and are the voice of young artists in San Francisco.
