Youth Advocacy for Health Literacy in Steel Valley

The Pitt-Bridge Health Science Clubs seeks support for underserved students in middle and high school of Steel Valley School District. The goal is for the students to learn how to acquire and share health literacy with peers and family. With trained mentors, each club will promote health literacy, built upon STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts and Mathematic) foundational disciplines. The health themes have been locally identified and selected as being of school and community relevance. Club members learn the background context, design and conduct CBPR projects at school or in families at home to better understand and influence their topic. They share what they learn, to become health literate advocates in promoting healthy behaviors to friends and family members. The high school club has selected ?Social Isolation In Teens?. The middle school club has selected ?The Right to Sight?.
