The ‘Be the Change’ Youth Training Program, first implemented in 2013, is an annual opportunity for youth age 14-18 to connect with like-minded peers from around the country who are passionate leaders of change in their schools and communities. During the program, participants learn about and discuss health and education topics, develop advocacy and leadership skills, and have fun through interactive, team-building activities. ‘Be the Change’ participants network with each other and school-based health care advocates at the convention and engage in various workshops about health, education, policy, and leadership. ‘Be the Change’ offers young people a platform to grow in knowledge and confidence as directors of their health and champions of youth voices.
