Unidos Por Salud
Unidos Por Salud Youth Coalition
The Unidos Por Salud staff gets the opportunity to partner with high school youth across the Central Valley on various policy efforts in their respective community. Active youth coalition members are an essential part of the program’s success in providing services. The program empowers young people to take the lead in policy efforts in their local communities. Youth get the chance to participate in various activities including Youth quest and the Youth Leadership Summit, as well as trainings including data collection, becoming a youth advocate and leader, and working with elected officials.
The program currently has three youth coalitions in the cities of Dos Palos, Reedley, and Wasco.
