Meet the Yab Members
We run on a flat leadership structure,
meaning that we all share responsibilities,
we all make decisions, and we are all leaders.
We're proud to introduce you to our Yab Members!
Meet Rachel - Yab Member since feb 2021
I am a part-time student at UW-Madison studying sociology and gender and women’s studies and part of the Dane County Youth Action Board. Before getting involved with the YAB, I was on the board of Disability Pride Madison and worked in MERIT library for four years. I’m also an artist and writer currently working on a graphic novel about navigating the healthcare system as a CSA survivor. I started a new job in February, working in the youth services field, at Youth Collaboratory as part of their Youth Catalyst Team. The YAB has been so important to me because it’s given me a critical sense of community and helped me transform previously very isolating experiences with homelessness into positive change.
