'Be the Change' Youth Training Program
We started the ‘Be the Change’ Youth Training Program in 2013 as a platform dedicated for young people to grow in knowledge and confidence as directors of their health and champions of youth voices. We strive for youth to recognize, enhance, and apply their talents and skills as influential, ethical leaders of youth-led, school-based health promotion.
During the program, participants learn about and discuss health and education topics, develop advocacy and leadership skills, and have fun through interactive, team-building activities. ‘Be the Change’ participants get to know each other and school-based health care advocates and engage in various workshops about health, education, policy, and leadership.
