From funders to partners: elevating community expertise to help communities thrive

Robert, David, Annika, and Ta’Mya—members of the NW Louisiana Teen Advisory Committee (TAC)—prepare to present data and policy recommendations to local civic, education, and nonprofit leaders about the mental wellbeing challenges faced by young people in the region. The TAC is an initiative of LEAPS, a BHP-supported program launched by IYF to make space for teens to identify and raise issues and find solutions within their community.
