Teen Advisory Board
Teen Advisory Board (TAB)
The role of the Teen Advisory Board is to plan and implement activities for the teen volunteers at Cedars-Sinai. The board will also provide an opportunity to build relationships among teens and to foster personal growth and leadership skills. The Teen Advisory Board acts as the voice of our teen volunteer population and provides invaluable suggestions on issues relevant to teen volunteers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
If you are interested in applying to our 2012-2013 Teen Advisory Board, please check back in late-April to download the application, which will be available online and via email.
