Youth Health in Washtenaw County: How to Support our Future
Come hear a panel of youth from Washtenaw County discuss the needs they are seeing in the community, what they are doing to create change, and what we can do to support them. Some of the panelists will discuss Ozone House’s Peer Outreach Workers and the Corner Health Center’s Youth Leadership Council survey of the health and safety experiences of young people living in Ypsilanti – a project they call Ypsilanti Youth Creating Change or Y2C2. To gather information, Y2C2 youth leaders conducted 10 focus groups with Ypsilanti youth and collected 273 surveys. The goal of Y2C2 is to share the research findings with community leaders who can influence local policy. Additionally, youth leaders from different sectors will talk about other exciting projects they are working on. Kick off the school year by learning from Washtenaw County’s youth leaders.
