About

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Youth Advisory Council is a newly formed group of youth brought together to increase youth involvement within the Department. The Council is part of the Departmentís new Positive Youth Development Initiative that aims to promote positive outcomes for young people by providing opportunities that build on strengths and empower next-generation change makers to reach their full potential.   

Through the DPH Youth Advisory Council, members:

        Work directly with DPH staff at a public health center, serving as local DPH youth ambassadors and gaining hands-on community-level work experience.

        Develop leadership and advocacy skills through monthly Youth Advisory Council meetings focused strengthening youth voice, and personal and group competencies.

        Learn about the various public health issues impacting Los Angeles County residents and on how the Department works to address them.

       Advise and make appropriate recommendations regarding health issues of special interest to youth within Los Angeles County, and help guide the work of the Department of Public Health.
