Youth Advocates for Health (YA4-H! / “yay 4-H”) is a 4-H leadership program that empowers teens to make a difference in their community by exploring and helping solve community issues. Teen interns will work 2-3 hours per week within the YA4-H! club in a team with WSU faculty, staff, and 4-H volunteers to learn about important public health issues, brainstorm local solutions and then take action by completing a teen-led community project. YA4-H! is open to all high school-aged teens.
Members also have opportunities to apply for paid WSU internships, travel, attend state and national leadership conferences, rack up resume-boosting volunteer hours, and more.
OCTOBER 2022 UPDATE: YA4-H! is on hold for 2022, while we focus on other programming, but if you’re interested in volunteering or taking part in the YA4-H! program please contact Alison.White@wsu.edu to join the interest list!
