McCreary is committed to returning the results of the survey to young people. We are currently preparing an interactive curriculum which teachers, youth workers and others who work with youth can use to engage young people in a dialogue about risk and protective factors for healthy development.
A poster created by McCreary’s Youth Advisory and Action Council is available to download here.
Hard copies of the poster are available to purchase by completing and emailing McCreary this form.
BC Adolescent Health Survey: Report Launch Webinars
In response to interest, McCreary will host a second series of web-based presentations of the BC Adolescent Health Survey results, which was launched on February 12th.
Each session will last for an hour and provide an overview of the provincial findings, including the current health of BC youth and changes in health behaviours over the past decade.
Information about the currently scheduled presentations is below, but we are happy to add more if there is interest. It can take some time to download the Webex software, so we recommend starting to log in five or ten minutes before the meeting.
Youth Action Grants (YAG) - Grants up to $500 for youth-led projects
The Youth Action Grants (YAG) are a project of the McCreary Youth Advisory & Action Council (YAC). The YAGs were created to provide BC youth (ages 12-19) from school districts that participated in the 2013 BC Adolescent Health Survey, the opportunity to deliver a project which aims to improve youth health in their school or community.
