Youth Health Champions

Our Youth Health Champions is a volunteering opporunity designed in partnership with the NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde in order to promote health topics within the local community for young people and to deliver training to local organisations with their peers. We are using Peer Education as an approach to health promotion, in which community members are supported to promote health-enhancing change among their peers. 

The Youth Health Champions will be gettiing involved with:

  • Promoting health topics within your local community
  • Attending training days
  • Attending health champion meetings
  • Supporting the delivery of YoMo/NHS Health Programme
  • Supporting YoMo’s/NHSGGC’s Peer Education delivery
  • Attending events
  • Promoting YoMo/NHSGGC within the community
  • Delivering health related training to your peers within local youth groups and schools
  • Supporting the development of health-related training packs to be delivered to peers

With the support from YoMo and NHSGG&C Health Improvement Team staff, young people gain valuable skills and experience, to enabling them to become a peer educator. It will enhance a young persons' employability skills, as it will be a unique addition to a Curriculum Vitae (CV). Through the process, young people will gain a Saltire Award for their volunteering hours and will be given the opportunity to gain at least two or more accredited qualifications.
