This initiative uses public health models to focus on the development of inherent strengths and assets in youth, promoting overall health development. The health and well-being of youth continue to have a significant impact on the overall health of society because today’s youth are tomorrow’s workforce, parents, and leaders. In the past, approaches to working with youth to improve health often focused solely on problem behaviors to change them.
