From a Teen Board Member:

"I am so grateful that I was introduced to the museum and to the teen board through this project. This project allowed for me to get to know my survivor, Erika, on a personal level and I gained such a greater perspective of the Holocaust than I would have otherwise. The part I enjoyed most about this experience was being able to bond with Erika...not only by talking about the Holocaust, but also through hearing Erika's life advice.... I have gotten far more out of this experience than I ever thought possible."

2017-18 Teen Advisory Board

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust's Teen Advisory Board consists of high school students from schools across Los Angeles who are committed to furthering the Museum's mission of commemoration and education. Through the Teen Board, students have the opportunity to add their voices and contribute their leadership to the landscape of Holocaust remembrance and education in our community by shaping events and engagements at the Museum. Board Members gather every other month for official meetings at the Museum and participate in a variety of different programs throughout the school year, including the Annual Gala and Yom HaShoah Commemoration.

The 2017-18 Teen Advisory Board was awarded Los Angeles Jewish Teen Initiative (LAJTI) Teen Innovation Awards for three different projects.
