statemntSince July 2014, the Wake Up Youth Action Team Leaders (YATL’s) have been creating positive change in schools and in the community by “growing positive flowers” and “shrinking negative weeds”.

YATL’s work together and with their peers on projects such as: Sticker Shock at liquor stores, engaging Galvin students in how to be “Above the Influence”, inventing creative ways (“News Flush” & “Bathroom Buzz”) to get important health info and Youth Risk Behavior Survey data to Galvin and High School students, and presenting e-cigarette information to the 9th graders via health classes at WHS.  See the YAT Activities page for more.
