Youth Action Grants

The Youth Action Grants (YAG) were created by McCreary’s Youth Advisory & Action Council (YAC). The purpose of the YAGs is to provide BC youth (ages 12–19) from school districts that participated in the 2018 BC Adolescent Health Survey the opportunity to deliver a project to improve youth health in their school or community.

The 2019 granting cycle is now open.

YAGs fund projects which are:

2018 BC AHS youth resources

McCreary is committed to returning the results of the 2018 BC Adolescent Health Survey to young people in school districts that participated in the survey across BC.

We are currently preparing an interactive curriculum which teachers, nurses, youth workers and others who work with youth can use to engage young people in a dialogue about youth health in their community.

McCreary's Youth Advisory and Action Council is preparing a infographic poster of the 2018 BC AHS key findings, which will available to download here in April 2019.
