The LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth (LCAHY) applauded Teens for Healthy Youth (THY) for their leadership, community service, peer to peer education, advocacy, and positive youth development during a virtual LCAHY Board meeting. LCAHY’s Chair, Wendy Cummings, acknowledged the youths’ determination to promote positive youth health even during the challenging times of COVID-19 and encouraged the youth to continue their efforts during the school year. THY representatives from each of the five area schools including Bluffton High School, Hilton Head Christian Academy, Hilton Head High School, Hilton Head Prep, and May River High School, participated in the Zoom meeting and showcased their peer to peer education projects implemented during SAMSHA’s National Prevention Week May 2020. In a video message, Kylie Nelson, a youth representative on the LCAHY Board and President of THY at May River, encouraged the LCAHY Board and community members to learn more about THY’s year-long efforts by reading LCAHY’s e-news alert at https://mailchi.mp/f27dd8eae9be/thy-promote-positive-teen-health-year-round-during-covid-19.
