SALSA and Triple A Programs
Volunteering opportunity for community engagement
In both programs, university students train peer leaders (high school students) to teach younger students. They aim to build capacity and skills in the high school students and to strengthen relations between high schools and universities.
We encourage university students interested in health and adolescent health to find out more and get involved.
What is SALSA?
SALSA is a peer-led leadership program designed to motivate students to improve their diet and increase physical activity.
The SALSA Project is a partnership between Western Sydney Local Health District, Mt Druitt, Blacktown and Hills Medical Practitioners Associations, High Schools, Western Sydney Primary Health Network and the University of Sydney.
