What is an adult ally?
An adult ally is a health professional who wholeheartedly believes in the potential of youth to become greater versions of themselves. They are supportive mentors who encourage participation, positive development, and organization in their students. They also listen, learn and appreciate young people’s assets.
In our context, an adult ally could be a certificated school district staff member or clinic provider youth organizer. These professionals are entrusted with: supporting youth in their campaigns, holding regular meetings with their respective site-based Student Advisory Boards (SAB), and providing a safe and inclusive environment for students to flourish.
