McCreary is hiring Youth Health Ambassadors

McCreary Centre Society is hiring youth in Grades 8–11 to become Youth Health Ambassadors! Youth Health Ambassadors will be part of a team of youth across BC who are hosting conversations with their peers about the health issues that are important to them. Information from these conversations will ensure the health issues that are important to young people in your school and community are included in our upcoming provincial survey, the 2023 BC Adolescent Health Survey.
