The summer Health Ambassadors had the opportunity to present research that has inspired them in the work they are doing to establish their own student-led programs at the school. Thank you, Mr. Cox and Amy Speaks for your positivity, feedback, and reinforcement that data matters! •

It’s our first day with summer interns! These four students submitted applications and were selected to be LWK Health Ambassadors representing each of their schools (Camden High, Camden Military Academy, Lugoff-Elgin High, and North Central High). Each will be building action plans for their school that will be ready for implementation upon return in August. Mary Reames, our Intern Coordinator will be overseeing the students’ work and providing lots of yoga/mindfulness breaks 💆🏽♀️👨🏻💻! Be on the lookout for updates from these student leaders 🤓🧠 Special thank you to @laurie_funderburk for allowing us to use your office for Day 1!
After conducting our focus groups, it was time to make sense of all the data! Three sensemaking sessions were held for Camden, Lugoff-Elgin and North Central High Schools. Thank you to everyone who attended for being our experts on what youth need to be healthy…physically, mentally, and socially 🤓🤗💪🏽🧠#HealthyCarolinas#100MLives
Rev. Richard Joyner came to share his journey in Conetoe, NC. His community engaged youth in a complete overhaul of the community’s food system with a focus on human development.

Thank you to @thehypeprojectsc for allowing me to present an action planning breakout session at the 2018 Youth Summit! Looking forward to following the HYPE teams across the state of SC and the amazing projects that will follow.
