PROGRAMS & EVENTS: Getting to Y

Getting to ‘Y’ is an evidence-based practice through which middle and high school aged youth bring meaning to their Youth Risk Behavior Survey data (YRBS), address youth health and well-being issues, and connect with their peers, school, and community. Students receive funding to implement their improvement projects. Recruiting now for our 2022 - 2023 groups!

 

September 2022: We are actively recruiting middle school and high school students to be a part of this program! It's a great learning experience and opportunity to create meaningful change at your school - we even get money to do so! HCC began from a collective youth voice wanting to change Hartford for the good so be part of the force to keep it going!

 

Please email kellyc@hccvt.org if you or your student are interested!

HMMS students used funding during the 2021-22 school year to address mental health concerns at their school by making the bathrooms a more positive and safe space.

After the bathroom project, middle school students held a Community Dialogue night with parents and school staff to discuss their findings and other areas of future improvement.
