Youth Advocacy Corps (“YAC”) launched its pilot program in 2015 - the Youth Advocacy Summer Institute (“YASI”). YASI is a summer-long health justice, legal advocacy, and youth leadership program, through which teens from New York City's most disadvantaged and isolated neighborhoods are trained to become health advocates in their own communities. YASI provides service and experiential learning opportunities, in addition to training, and the youth work for a living-wage stipend as health advocates in Brooklyn.
