Advisory Council

Community-based Participatory Project
Our wellness initiative relies on community participation to produce appropriate changes in the Project region. The Project Advisory Council assists and supports the Tribal Youth Ambassadors for Tobacco Control by providing recommendations and approaches to community-based tobacco control efforts. The participation of the Advisory Council to gain public support and involvement within their local communities promotes Native community wellness and resiliency.

The 9-member Advisory Council meets bi-monthly throughout the 5-year Project. It is composed of diverse members of the Native and wider communities in the Project region. The Advisory Council may form Ad Hoc Committees to assist with project activities and further Native Peoples’ involvement in controlling and preventing commercial tobacco use in Native communities and all communities. To learn more about the Advisory Council, see the By-Laws and Organizational Chart.
