The mission of the EDCI Youth Leadership Council is to inspire, educate, and empower youth to become advocates of health and wellness within the East Durham and their school communities by providing training and leadership development opportunities for elementary and middle school students.
In the elementary and middle school cohorts of the YLC, students design and implement community health initiatives addressing physical health and nutrition, social-emotional health, and community safety. In previous cohorts, YLC students have created a school-wide anti-loneliness campaign (including an original Public Service Announcement and a social lunch series) and led activities at an all-school health fair.Supporters:
