WCCUSD SBHC Youth Advisory Boards

The West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) Youth Advisory Boards are the youth advisory groups taking place at the seven WCCUSD school-based health centers. These groups of student health advocates from seven different high schools, work to promote health access on their school campuses and support each of the district’s seven school-based health centers.

Members of the 2010-2011 John F. Kennedy High School Health Center Youth Advisory Board.

 

In the winter of 2011, these student health advocates drafted “Our Voices, Our Rights: Youth Bill of Rights in the Health Center,” the first-ever youth-generated bill of rights for school health center users. In 2013, the students worked to ratify the bill of rights with the WCCUSD Board of Education and disseminate “Our Voices, Our Rights” to various audiences in West Contra Costa County. Currently, the student health advocates work to inform the WCCUSD Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to ensure student voice and student health services are included in the process.
