Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

The Teen Advisory Board is a student-run leadership committee that oversees the activities of more than 600 teen volunteers at the medical center. TAB members are involved in the interviewing, training and day-to-day managing and mentoring of our entire teen volunteer population. The board assists in welcoming and mentoring teens, providing opportunities to build relationships among teens and staff, and fostering personal growth and leadership skills.

The Teen Advisory Board acts as the voice of our teen volunteer population and provides invaluable suggestions on issues relevant to teen volunteers at Cedars-Sinai. It offers a unique opportunity for board members to make a difference in the lives of their peers, our patients and Cedars-Sinai staff.
