Youth Outreach Squad offers youth ages 12-16 comprehensive mental and physical health outreach training. Youth have the opportunity to learn about topics such as STI and HIV prevention, nutrition, reproductive health, healthy relationships, and project planning and implementation. YOS helps youth learn to manage their health, demystifies the medical system, raises awareness on the relationship between poverty, violence, and chronic poor health. At the end of the program,  youth are tasked with becoming agents of change, taking the information learned throughout the program to conduct community outreach via social media and tabling events. Participants earn a stipend for the duration of the program.
