Last month over 100 youth convened in Sacramento for the 2010 Youth Convergence. Youth had the opportunity to share about their work in creating healthier environments in their schools and communities, and develop tools and strategies affect policy. This conference was put on by the California Center for Civic Participation, California Convergence, Partnership for Public Health (PPH), CANFit, and Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program (CCROPP).
The following weekend we hosted our Next Generation Capitol Focus Program, in which we brought together eight teams of youth and adults from through out the state. Teams got to roll up their sleeves and experience first-hand, the issues, processes, and players of our state government. Way to go youth participants and adult allies! Stay tuned for a full report on both programs.
