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. We are actively working now with our 2022 - 2023 groups!
HMMS and HHS students at the 2021 Training at the WRJ VDH location.
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.
