Youth Advocates for Community Health (YACH) Information and Application – DEADLINE FEBRUARY 10th

The Youth Advocates for Community Health (YACH) program is an exciting paid opportunity for high school aged students to get hands-on experiences improving health at the local level. A small group of youth will work as a team to identify strategies and develop plans to address issues related to community nutrition and health.

The 2018 program focus will be determined by the youth selected for the program along with guidance and directions from members of the Marquette County HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Lifesyle) Team. The FoodWIse and 4-H Programs will support this project through leadership and education.  Participating youth will have opportunities to network, collaborate, and learn from youth implementing these projects throughout the state and community leaders who engage in health and nutrition activities.
