Youth Health Groups are youth groups that are formed in each of our communities to build on the strengths of the youth to deliver health messaging to their peers and other members of the community. Youth Health Groups aim to: Mobilize youth to take action on their own; Promote individual and family health; and Empower youth to make better self-care choices.
