Currently Accepting Applications for Youth Advisory Board Members!

The Developmental Risk and Cultural Resilience Laboratory at Brigham and Women's Hospital & Harvard Medical School is currently accepting applications for Chinese/Taiwanese high school students who are passionate about issues that affect Asian Americans (e.g., mental health, racism, family dynamics, peer relationships, social media influences). Students will serve on our Youth Advisory Board and will specifically consult for our new NIH-funded research project on the experiences of Chinese/Taiwanese youth. We are starting out with Chinese/Taiwanese Americans but expect to expand the project to include other Asian American groups in the future. 


Youth Advisory Board members will provide a youth perspective to our research by advising The BOBA (Building Our Bonds Authentically) Project, a new research study that focuses on how Chinese/Taiwanese teenagers have conversations with their parents and friends about current issues that affect Asian Americans. Beyond providing their perspectives, Youth Advisory Board members will meet regularly with our research team, learn directly from our team about the research process, contribute to community outreach, and receive professional developmental opportunities. Youth Advisory Board members will receive a $500 stipend for their participation. 

This is a great leadership opportunity for Chinese/Taiwanese high school students interested in psychology, research, and issues that affect Asian American youth. 


Applicants from schools that have a March deadline must submit their applications by 11:59 PM on Monday, March 20th, 2023. If you have any questions, please see our FAQ below.
