Children & Youth Initiative

The Latino Children and Youth Initiative is a health intervention for children and youth living in high-risk environments. Activities are designed to reduce health disparities, increase resilience and leadership skills, enlarge the worldview, strengthen families, improve mental and physical health, and improve academic performance. Youth Promotores learn about nutrition, physical activity, injury prevention, mental health, and sibling care. They coordinate and plan activities after school and in apartment buildings and courtyards. Siblings and families needing medical or mental health services are referred to the resources they need.
