Volunteering opportunity for community engagement


SALSA (Students As Lifestyle Activists) and Triple A (Adolescent Asthma Action) are peer-led empowerment leadership programs, currently based in high schools, mostly in Western Sydney.

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.

The programs are delivered by the Primary Health Care Education and Research Unit (PERU) Рa collaboration between Western Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney.

We encourage university students interested in health and adolescent health to find out more and get involved.
