Project Update: State Youth Advocacy Network
In January, The California Endowment and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation joined forces for our #dreambrave youth summit in Los Angeles. This campaign was part of the larger partnership between ZeroDivide and The California Endowment to promote and empower the Endowment’s Youth Advocacy Network in California. In the next few weeks, ZeroDivide will complete selection of 25 young adults to serve as Health Action Leaders, working on two statewide campaigns centered around health in their communities. ZeroDivide will be convening the fellows at the end of June for training on social media, advocacy and community organizing to empower them with the needed skills to be health advocates in their neighborhoods. Over the course of the next few months, the fellows will work on social media campaigns, blogging and engaging other young adults in their communities to advocate for their own health and wellness.
