SHAB members come from different public high school across San Francisco. Their mission is to bring awareness and educate others of the health disparities of tobacco use through the Public Service Announcement contest and promote healthy choices.

  • plan, promote and judge the Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest 
  • meet once or twice a month after school

  • receive anti-oppression and leadership training
  • plan district-wide events
  • earn a stipend up to $400
