2021 Virtual Advocacy Afternoon – For Youth!

Wednesday, April 28, 2:30-5:00 pm

Join our Youth Board and other high school student leaders from across the state to advocate for school-based health services.

Your experiences as a student are critically important – especially now – and we want to make sure our state’s legislators and policymakers hear directly from you. One of the best ways to gain support for better school health services is to share your experiences and what you know. Help us show state policymakers what makes school-based health care so important. Space is limited so sign-up early!

Adult Allies: Do you coordinate a youth advisory group for your SBHC? Or do you work with a group of student peer health educators? Please share this event with youth. Contact Lisa at leisenberg@schoolhealthcenters.org if you have a group of youth interested in participating.
