MCI Youth Advisory Board Sponsorship
Male Contraceptive Initiative’s (MCI) Youth Advisory Board (YAB) consists of students and young professionals passionate about male contraception. They provide our organization with insights into the perceptions and needs of younger users, who are key to understanding what new male methods need to be successful. MCI also helps YAB members with their own professional development by facilitating attendance at conferences, research projects, and ample networking opportunities.
In mid 2020, our YAB supported the review of proposed research projects for MCI’s David Sokal Innovation Awards and Discovery and Development Awards. Their participation in this process helped to expand the areas of focus beyond clinical product research to the exploration of sociobehavioral impacts of male contraception. Our YAB also plays a key role in ensuring that we consistently integrate youth input in our ongoing educational outreach and advocacy efforts.
We recruit passionate, knowledgeable, and well-spoken youth leaders. Your investment is incredibly valuable in providing the YAB with resources to develop outreach materials, assemble meetings and town halls, engage with and recruit peers, and more!
