YA-4-H (Youth Advocates for Health) Teens as Teachers


Multnomah 4-H Youth Advocates for Health Program
"Teens as Teachers"


About our Program

The 4-H Youth Advocates for Health (YA4-H! Pronounced "YAY 4-H") program engages 4-H teens in health-related learning, with the ultimate goal of supporting youth to lead health-related change in their communities. YA4-H! prepares youth to work in partnership with adults and other teens to engage communities for change, and equips and empowers them as learners, teachers, researchers, and advocates to address critical health-related concerns. Along the way, YA4-H! provides opportunities for teens to develop and practices the skills that will help them as they work their way through the transition into young adulthood.

Multnomah's YA-4-H program kicked off it's teen teaching this past fall at a training in Redmond, Or.

Multnomah youth and chaperons joined others from around the state for a three day training in Nov. 2016.  These teens then came home and trained an additional nine youth, then kicked off their program in January in East Multnomah!
