Youth health champions

Youth health champions are volunteers who help young people in Peterborough to talk about youth health.

It's an exciting role for young people who wish to make a difference towards increasing the accessibility of health services for young people, including sexual health, emotional well-being and weight management.

Involvement

Youth health champions work with young people across the local area, helping them develop healthier, more active lifestyles. As a champion you’ll get lots of training and support, and it’s a chance for you to use your energy and ideas to make a difference to the wellbeing of other young people.

As a youth health champion you can:

  • Commit as much or as little time as you want.
  • Receive training, advice and support.
  • Get in touch with individuals or groups of young people that can benefit from your help.
  • Arrange activities, including organising a bake-off to running a street dance session - the choice is yours!

What you will gain

  • Accredited qualifications, which can be the equivalent to GCSEs and look great on your CV.
  • Experience of working with people - helping your job prospects, especially if you want a career in health and social care, marketing or events.
  • Chance to meet new people and make new friends. 
  • Free training and networking opportunities.
  • Lots of self-confidence.
