Youth Advisory Board

The Dauphin County Drug & Alcohol Youth Advisory Board (YAB) was formed on April 1, 2010 in an effort to give youth a voice in Dauphin County. The Dauphin County Department of Drug & Alcohol Services looked for dedicated youth from each of the eleven school districts to form an advisory board. They charged this group with assisting the Department in forming Treatment, Prevention, Intervention and Support Service plans for youth in Dauphin County.

As the youth came together it was evident that this group was dedicated to do this mission and much more. Since its formation, the YAB meets bi-weekly, gains knowledge, and shares their views of the Drug and Alcohol system. Each year we strive to have at least 2 members from every high school in Dauphin County. If you are interested in joining, please contact Heather Crook, Sherry Clouser or Dionne Baylor at 717-635-2254 or email at,
