Mission

Out of the 1.2 billion adolescent youth globally, many do not receive the health education and support they need to achieve their full potential. Social pressures and gender inequality make adolescent girls particularly vulnerable to significant health consequences. We believe an untapped resource can help address this problem: the youth themselves. Adolescent Health Champions cultivates a global network of youth health educators (Champions) who lead the educational process in their schools + communities and support one another + their peers in successfully navigating the transition to adulthood in a healthy manner.
