Become a Forest County Youth Advocate for Community Health!

Do you know a teen, or are you a teen that is interested in a health or wellness career or is interested in developing leadership skills related to community health?  If so, the Forest County Coalition on Activity and Nutrition (Forest County CAN!), in partnership with the UW-Madison Division of Extension Forest County, has a great opportunity for Forest County high school students interested in becoming a teen voice on the CAN! Coalition.

As a Forest County Youth Advocate for Community Health (YACH), teens will participate in Coalition monthly meetings, develop skills related to health and community development, work side-by-side with community members on projects related to health and well-being, and represent Forest County at State and National trainings. UW-Madison Extension educator Michelle Gobert will work with youth to ensure their voice is heard within the CAN! Coalition.  Representatives from all School Districts within Forest County are needed!

Teens interested in participating are encouraged to pick up an application at the Crandon High School Career Fair, or available online here.  Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 27th.  For more information about the program, please call Michelle at 715-478-7797.
