Last October 2020, Osayuware (Tina) Enagbare (OAK’18) brought her Surge Fellowship capstone to life. She launched her organization’s 1st Youth Advisory Board and ushered in the next phase of health equity in my organization by centering high school student voices in our work, while focusing on their individual growth (professional development, networking with their peers, and providing a work opportunity).
“We launched in our Bay Area and Los Angeles communities. As we wrap our 1st year with this amazing group of students, we’re celebrating all their accomplishments – including co-designing our strategic plan! We have plans to double the size and our investment of our youth advisory board next fiscal year by scaling to new communities across the country and are being led by their brilliance!”
