Teen Health Mississippi coordinates the Youth Action Council (YAC), a group of Mississippi youth that provide feedback on the most important elements of a youth-friendly health center. In partnership with trained adults, YAC offers in-person youth-friendliness training and resources for health centers. YAC envisions: “Healthier teens, a positive environment, and providers who are more effective, more open-minded, and who dismiss the stereotypes.”

If you are between the ages of 15-24 and you are interested in joining the Mississippi Youth Action Council (YAC), please email Christopher at christopher@teenhealthms.org . If you work in a health center in Mississippi and would like to schedule a clinic walk-through or a custom youth-friendly training for your staff delivered by YAC, please email Christopher at christopher@teenhealthms.org.
