Inspiring Student Leadership
The aim of the SALSA Youth Voices program is to provide peer leaders with an opportunity to identify and develop an action at schools which will encourage all students to have access to healthy foods and engage in physical activity.
The program uses a strength-based approach and aims to further build leadership, communication and teamwork skills in students.
The program comprises two one-day workshops:
-Leadership day, held in term 3, where students identify and plan their action
-Action Day, held in term 4, where students present their actions at a forum of education and health professionals
