The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a group comprised of talented young leaders, ages 14-21, who join Breathe’s efforts in education, policy, advocacy, and research. YAB members meet with Breathe staff and Board of Directors monthly to contribute their voices to Breathe’s clean air, lung health, and tobacco prevention projects, such as:

  • Speaking on behalf of Breathe programs to the media and at events
  • Building new partnerships between Breathe California and their school and community
  • Taking part in creative fundraisers
  • Advocating for clean air and lung health policy
  • Strengthening leadership skills and utilizing these skills in planning meetings and events
  • Working with the Breathe California Board of Directors and staff on issues that impact our mission and vision of clean air, healthy lungs and a tobacco-free future
  • Making our community a healthier place to live

What we are asking of students:

 Students would be required to attend one monthly group meeting (in the evening of the second Monday of each month, Sept.-May), as well as some additional events (for example, Earth Day).

 Student benefits of participation:

Students will learn valuable leadership and professional skills, while earning volunteer hours and learning about education, policy, advocacy and research in the realms of clean air, lung health, and tobacco prevention projects.

 Recruitment timeline/details:

 Our first program formally begins at the first meeting on Sept. 10th. We are hoping to receive participant applications by the end of next week, and conduct afternoon interviews with students at our office Sept 3 -5th so that participants are prepared to take part in the first meeting on Sept 10th.

Mira Loma High School presents its 9th annual Dance Marathon, a 6-hour fun-filled event including games, food, music, performances, a dance JAM, and much more. With MLDM, you have the chance to be part of something bigger, the chance to fundamentally change lives through service and philanthropy. All funds raised through our event go directly to the UC Davis Children’s Hospital to provide treatment for children in the Sacramento valley, to promote research, and to establish outreach programs for local communities to promote healthier lifestyles.

If you would like to volunteer at our event and receive CAS/CS hours, fill out THIS FORM:

Could there be a better way to spend your Friday than jamming out to your favorite music, meeting and making new friends, eating great food, playing thrilling games, watching talented performances, all while making the world a better place?

 We don’t think so.

Invite ALL of your friends and family and come on out and do it #FORTHEKIDS.
