The Y.A.B. is a group of peers working to combat youth and young adult homelessness. Youth and young adults ages 14-24 in Berkshire, Franklin and Hampshire counties, and the North Quabbin region, who are passionate about eliminating youth homelessness are invited to join. 


The Y.A.B. meets virtually on Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. on Discord, with some additional, optional paid trainings and workshops. Youth earn $30 per weekly meeting for participating. During these meetings, we often work on a grant process to end homelessness. We're also working to create more space for youth-led projects related to ending homelessness, such as qualitative research and supporting youth in, and transitioning out of, the foster care system.
