Youth Outreach Workers
The Youth Outreach Internship is a site based program for students to work in collaboration with their Wellness Center. Work includes health & wellness outreach and promotion, youth advocacy and ambassadorship, and peer support activities.
Nutrition Outreach Workers
Nutrition Outreach Workers (NOWs) carry out nutrition-focused wellness initiatives at their school sites. NOWs promote California fruits and vegetables available at local Farmers’ Markets to other students, staff, and families. NOWs engage their peers through taste tests, educational events, and classroom presentations. Through their work, this group addresses issues of food justice and diet-based illnesses disproportionately present in their communities.

Water Ambassadors engage their peers through taste tests of fruit infused water, educational events, and classroom presentations. Through their work, this group addresses issues of water access and diet-based illnesses disproportionately present in their communities.
