Become a Life Saver!

LifeAct’s Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is a motivated group of high school students from all over Northeast Ohio supports LifeAct in its suicide prevention work by serving as teen consultants and ambassadors. Members provide important input on LifeAct’s programming and marketing outreach materials.  We welcome all high school students who share in our mission to help save young lives!

YAB members are expected to attend monthly meetings held at the LifeAct office. Each year the YAB assists with our annual Into the Light Walk. Members create school walk teams and are essential volunteers at the event. Students help with distributing LifeAct information and working on various projects. LifeAct gives its YAB members a firsthand experience with the non-profit world while also helping them to gain valuable volunteer hours. Members get the wonderful satisfaction of helping others and having fun at the same time!

PLEASE NOTE:  LifeAct’s Youth Advisory Board is not a peer-to-peer counseling group.  The most important way a teen can act to save another teen’s life is by letting a trusted adult know someone is at risk for suicide so that person can be connected to a mental health professional.  

Our Youth Advisory Board helps us to reduce

the stigma associated with depression and mental illness.
