School-Based Health Centers 101
School-Based Health Centers 101 is a four-hour training that introduces youth to the concept of school-based health centers (SBHCs) and allow them to gain a better understanding of the health care system and how it impacts young people. Youth learn how to advocate for increased access to health care for uninsured and underinsured youth through SBHCs. They also learn techniques that will assist them in future advocacy endeavors and are introduced to topics in a fun and educational atmosphere.
Access 202 is a four-hour training that reinforces topics discussed in School-Based Health Centers 101 through discussions and advanced advocacy activities. This training aims to equip youth with the tools they need to gain support and create change in their communities. Though not required, it is encouraged that youth have completed School-Based Health Centers 101.
Specific topics include advanced social justice, strategic storytelling, media analysis and construction, social media literacy, presentation skills, creating outcomes, and action planning. This training gives youth the opportunity to develop action plans and encourages them to carry out their action plans when they leave the training.
