The Youth Navigator Network (YNN) has officially launched and is still recruiting members for the Young Adult Advisory Council (YAAC). Currently, there are three active youth members, and YNN would love to grow the council in the new year.
YNN is seeking youth ages 14-26 who are or who have been involved in the child welfare system to serve on the YAAC.As a member of the council, the young person would meet once a month with the team to discuss working agendas for the YNN as well as additional goal setting for their personal and professional use.
All members are provided a stipend of $20 per hour for their activities and engagement with the YAAC. It is a great personal and professional experience for young adults interested in community engagement and helping to continue to build on the YNN!
Any young adult who is interested in joining the YAAC can email Marissa Tuma. The Kinnect website also has information regarding the YAAC.
