Positive Youth Development-Youth Leadership (PYD-YL) Track

The PYD-YL Track provides an opportunity for youth from across the state to have fun, network, build leadership skills and gain  knowledge from their peers who are actively promoting adolescent health and wellness in their communities. The NM Department of Health, Office of School & Adolescent Health (OSAH) sponsored these youth teams who have agreed to take the health information back to their school or community. Young people are valuable partners who can relay vital health information to their peer. We know youth are more open to learning from their peers, however make sure it’s accurate information is key.   OSAH is dedicated to promoting the positive youth development approach which recognize youth as leaders of today and the importance of youth-adult partnership.  Together we can contribute to a health New Mexico.

Session participation by invitation only.
