Passing the Mic to the Next Generation

January 12, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET

Learning Objectives

We, as decision-makers, make choices that impact the overall health of our youth, but how do we know if they’re the right decisions?  The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth (VFHY) has taken great strides to center the expertise and voices of today’s young leaders.

In this one-hour virtual event, you will:

  • Hear from three Virginia teens and how COVID and other issues have affected their lives and those around them. 
  • See examples of youth-led strategies, implementation and evaluation from a variety of campaigns.
  • Learn to effectively listen to the needs of our youth and discover effective ways to communicate with young people.
