Youth Board

The Youth Board is recruiting new members!

The Youth Board’s mission is to engage with and provide programs/events and advocacy opportunities to young people ages 15-20.  The Youth Board is a way for young persons to develop a network with other youth affected by epilepsy. The Board is not exclusive to those who have epilepsy.  Rather it is a place for young persons with epilepsy to be joined by their siblings and friends in an effort to make a difference in their communities.

Youth Board members will meet monthly (virtually, and/or in person) to work on projects and prepare for major volunteering events (e.g. stroll for epilepsy, sports events, candlelight gala, etc.).  This is an exciting opportunity for young people to make a difference in their community and help others living with epilepsy through advocacy, education, and social media campaigns!

Thank you to our former Youth Board Chairs!
