YATL’s work together and with community partners on projects such as the creation of vaping prevention videos for parents/faculty/staff, the conduction of Sticker Shock at liquor stores in Town and giving presentations to Board of Health & to DA’s Opioid Prevention Task Force.
YATL’s work with their peers in the Galvin and High School via Youth Action Team Clubs. They engage Galvin students in how to be “Above the Influence”. They invent creative ways (“News Flush” & “Bathroom Buzz”) to get important health info and Youth Risk Behavior Survey data to Galvin and High School students. They create fun, interactive, peer-to-peer presentations to further the health prevention message for 7th-9th graders via health classes.
