Training for Adults by Youth

Training for Adults by Youth

The Youth Leadership Council, ICAH's education, new media and advocacy group, provides health education not only to their peers, but also to professionals and caregivers. The YLC provides training on youth and adult partnerships, on bringing youth voice from the margins to the center of programs, and on youth-friendly program strategies. All services are fee-based.

YLC members regularly train professionals in healthcare, family and school settings to transform their approach to adolescent health. For example, YLC members train nurse professionals on youth-friendly home visits through a partnership with the Young Women's Health Initiative out of Mercy Hospital. YLC members tailor their workshops to meet the needs of our partners and can design custom trainings for sites as well.
