The National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) is excited to announce the launch of PODER en SALUD: Youth as Solutions. PODER en SALUD uses service-learning as a strategy to engage Latinx teens as leaders in identifying local challenges and barriers to adopting COVID-19 testing, vaccine, and prevention recommendations and developing solutions. In addition, youth teams will develop a service-learning campaign to influence the behavior of peers and the broader community by creating posters, brochures, and other social media messaging. No previous experience in service-learning is required; NYLC will provide training and support through the program. Learn more on the Poder en Salud page and apply by completing the NYLC's PODER en SALUD Service-Learning Grant Application
