The Multnomah County Youth Violence Prevention Community Advisory Board (CAB) and Youth Advisory Board (YAB) consist of community members who strive towards reducing youth violence in Multnomah County. The CAB/YAB work to advise the direction of and expand the Multnomah County Health Department's youth violence prevention work.

Members provide system change, policy and program feedback, recommendations and strategies for violence prevention at the Health Department.

They also develop and promote violence prevention strategies, programs and policy within their own roles to expand the violence prevention work of the Health Department. 

As part of CAB/YAB, you commit to a monthly two hour meeting with the opportunity to work on additional projects outside of the CAB/YAB. YAB members are between the ages of 14-20. 

To find out more, text, call, or email Kallie Kurtz, Youth Violence Prevention Program Coordinator, at (971) 420-7705 or kallie.kurtz@multco.us.
