allcove Youth Advisory Board

BCHD is also seeking young people ages 16-25 to serve on its Youth Advisory Board as part of its new allcove Beach Cities youth wellness center.

Funded by the California Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission, a $2 million, 4-year grant will establish “allcove Beach Cities,” a youth wellness center initially opening at 514 N. Prospect Ave. in Redondo Beach, offering mental and physical health resources, education and employment counseling, peer and family support, and substance use prevention programs.

Developed at Stanford and based on an international model of integrated youth mental health, allcove provides a one-stop shop for young people ages 12-25 to access mental health services, resources and support for friends, family and the larger community.

To ensure that youth voices continue to be at the forefront of the allcove Beach Cities center experience, BCHD is recruiting for a dedicated group of 16-to-25-year-old advisors. The Youth Advisory Group members will help allcove Beach Cities gain a better understanding of young peoples’ needs and opinions to provide them with relevant and effective services. The panel will be comprised of up to 15 young people from the local community of the Beach Cities and surrounding areas.
