What is Youth Action for Health?

Youth Action for Health ( YAH) meets weekly to discuss important youth health related topics and create innovative solutions. With representation across grades, schools, and more, YAH provides a platform for young people to share their voices, perspectives, and ideas. We strive to uplift all youth in Fort Collins, so we have a very flexible structure for all members. Consistent attendance is not mandatory; we welcome anyone who can come at any time! Our purpose is to create a positive community within our group and promote positive communities elsewhere as much as we can! 

What Youth Health Topics
are our focus this quarter?

As the needs of the community change, Youth Action for Health's focuses also shift. The projects we work on, events we throw, and conversations we have relate to these issues. Every member is encouraged to speak up about the things they feel are important to focus on so that these themes stay relevant and effective! The list below are the current topics that Youth Action for Health is working to address. 


What Does a YOUTH Action For Health Meeting Look LIke?

We are currently meeting every Thursday from 6:30pm-8:00pm at the Foothills Activity Center!
See Schedule and Calendar for more information.

Our meetings start with a review of norms, and an overview of YAH for new members. Then we always do introductions, even among recurring members. Here, each person shares their name, their pronouns, how they are doing that day, and they answer the prompt question. It is a great way to check in with those you've gotten to know already, as well as learn more about new people!

The weekly agenda depends on current projects, but before diving into that we share any announcements that have come up since the last meeting. This is often used as an opportunity to share with the members about upcoming local events, changes in local policies or routines that may affect them and their communities, and other important information. Then we use the rest of our time to work on the agenda items, often with a fun activity in between to break up the hour. 

Snacks and drinks are provided, and after each meeting, every attendee receives $10 in compensation for participating! All members, from first-timers to regulars, are welcome to bring friends. We want school, work, and health to be the main priority for everyone who comes, so there is no pressure to attend every meeting or stay for the entire duration of one if something comes up. Again, our goal is to create a positive community!
