What is the OSBHA Youth Corp? Salma facilitating.jpg

The Youth Corps will create a space where youth voices can be input from the beginning stages of each OSBHA project. The Youth Corps will allow OSBHA to continue to strive to place youth in positions that create youth-adult-partnerships that truly are a partnership. Corps members will build professional development skills such as relationship and team-building, communication and public speaking, goal setting, event planning, and project management that will allow them to complete project-related deliverables, listening sessions, and youth events.

 

What does a Youth Corp intern do? 

 

All interns will be trained on co-facilitating listening sessions and provide support on OSBHA events. Two interns will be focused on HPV sexual health education and two interns will be focused on Advocacy Day. 

 

How do I connect with Youth Corp members to facilitate youth listening sessions or provide HPV training?
