Youth Development and Health Literacy

Working with young people requires a paradigm shift from viewing young people as future citizens to viewing young people as today’s citizens, with the capacity to effect change when given adequate supports and opportunities. It requires a breakdown of stereotypes that both adults and young people have about each other. The breakdown of stereotypes can occur through positive interactions as adults and young people work together as a team to achieve goals.


The Youth Health Link website serves as a central place for adolescent health information. This website is a one stop-shop portal for youth health information, linking numerous websites and resources for youth and youth partners to access.
