The California School Health Centers Association's Youth Board mentor and guide school health center youth leaders throughout the state. Please help us increase the impact of their work even further by giving them the opportunity to participate in the national school health conference in Chicago this June. Our talented team of college-aged school health leaders will be networking with youth from around the country to share successful strategies for building strong high school youth leadership teams. They will also be blogging, tweeting and posting interesting tidbits from the conference so that school health leadership teams throughout California can benefit from the experience. (Be sure to check later to find out how you can follow them in Chicago.)
CSHC's Youth Board is comprised of college-aged young adults who are committed to strengthening the school health movement. Youth board members mentor high school youth leaders, advocate for resources for school health services and help increase the visibility of California's 176 school health centers. Our 12-person Youth Board draws its strength and creativity from its diverse membership; each with experience in adolescent health, school health or community organizing.
Our Chicago bound team consists of: Nzugu Kitenge (Oakland), Becky Lee (Berkeley), Dale Maglalang (Davis), and Nidia Escobar (Los Angeles).
Donate now to help us make this trip a reality for these amazing young leaders!
CSHC is leading the movement to bring health services to kids where they spend most of their day - in school. We advocate for policies and funding to help sustain the movement, provide technical assistance to new and existing school health centers and spread the word about the good work school health centers are doing.
