Youth Take Action

Youth Visions for Health - CANFIT’s MO Project Youth from the Dolores Huerta Youth Foundation in Arvin, CA honored at the California Convergence in Sacramento.

On April 17-19th, over 100 youth from across the state ages 15-25 met in Sacramento for the California Convergence Conference to change the health of their communities and reduce obesity in the next generation. During the first two days of the conference entitled “Youth Taking Action,” young people from 21 communities including Oakland, Richmond, Los Angeles, Shasta and the Central Valley joined for interactive, team-building trainings and workshops in policy education, communications, media, spoken word and advocacy. Through collaboration of the California Center for Civic Participation, CCROPP, Partnership for the Public’s Health and CANFIT, young leaders connected with legislation in Sacramento to improve food and physical activity environments.
