Student led Storytelling to Teach Communities the Power of Prevention
Our organization has proudly participated in various preventive health-related projects. In our latest endeavor, we’ve partnered with Children for Health (CfH) to create compelling posters & storybooks about community-specific health and wellness topics for students ages 9 to 14.
The poster on prevention of Type 2 Diabetes has just been completed.
The storybooks will:
Be written by students in collaboration with teachers and topic experts;
Be Illustrated by CfH’s in-house artist;
Be strategically designed using the participatory inquiry method to spark curiosity;
Create a depth of understanding;
Mobilize youth to become agents of change in their communities
The storybooks will have a primary story for older students and teachers, a lighter story for youth to share with younger children, and additional hands-on activities for further growth and exploration.
We invite you to become a Partner in Prevention. We’d love to connect with you. We believe that, together, we can make a remarkable impact in our community.
