SYBOP Conference - April 26-28

What is SYBOP?
In April of 2004, a diverse group of teens nominated by schools, public health and community organizations from throughout California established a youth board to help promote healthy eating and physical activity to address the childhood obesity epidemic. Thirty high school students from ten communities statewide participate. This first-ever of its kind Statewide Youth Board on Obesity Prevention (SYBOP) was formed to offer a “youth voice” in statewide programs and policies while simultaneously training and supporting youth teams to take action on the issues in their home communities. The Youth Board has an established track record of partnering closely with California’s Department of Health Services, the California state legislature, and the Task Force on Youth and Workplace Wellness. Year-round support for current members of the Board is provided by the non-partisan California Center for Civic Participation with funds from the California Endowment, Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health Corporation and Sempra Energy.
