COVID-19 YOUTH AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

The overarching purpose of the COVID-19 Youth Ambassador Program (COVID-19 YAP) is to increase trust and equity in healthcare within communities that have experienced historical access barriers through youth preventive health education.

COVID-19 YAP aims to offer participants the knowledge, perspective, and tools to have empathetic, informative conversations with individuals in their networks and broader communities about COVID-19 and the vaccine.

CHAMPIONS incorporated COVID-19 YAP into the CHAMPIONS Summer 2021 Internship.
