Pathways to Health is a project that empowers young people between the ages of 16-19-years-old to create and implement solutions to health problems within their community. Throughout the year-long programme, a health professional provides mentoring and guidance while also receiving six health topics and leadership skills sessions.
Creation of a Community Health Project
To apply students must have created an idea to solve a health problem their community faces. Students will then be assigned to a group supported by a healthcare professional who will provide mentoring. As the year, and students knowledge, develops their idea will go from conception to implementation. The programme will end with a review of the students project and ways of ensuring sustainability.
Sessions our held on a monthly basis. Each session is divided into two themes: Health Education and Leadership Development.
Health Education Topics: Concept of Health, First Aid Skills, Mental Health, Healthy Eating and Nutrition, and Lifestyle and Exercise Medicine.
Leadership Development: Project Management, Team Working, Public Speaking, Problem Solving and Working with Communities Skills.
