Youth Advisory Board
YAB connects teenagers to the Northwest's all ages arts and music scene by giving them an opportunity to be a driving force in EMP's teen programming.
Youth Advisory Board (YAB) members directly influence teen programming at EMP Museum, collaborating with local musicians, artists, and community groups and promoting teen programs such as Sound Off! EMP’s 21 and under battle of the bands. In addition, youth create original content for The Soundboard, an online social network devoted to the all-ages music scene and actively contribute to EMP events and exhibit openings.
