Pathways to Health is inspired by our ethos that young people have the creativity and talent to solve many issues within our communities. Pathways to Health is a health education and leadership programme that empowers young people to work with health professionals to design, implement, and lead a health project that solves a health problem.
There are two aspects to the programme: The Project and The Events.
Students design and create a project to tackle a health issue they are passionate about. They will be allocated a healthcare professional mentor to support them throughout. The overall aim is to create a repository of health information designed by young people for young people.
Throughout the year there will be a combination of virtual and in-person events on health topics delivered by healthcare professionals. Students can attend as many as they would like and if they choose to can even present alongside a healthcare professional!
Students will be awarded the Health Pioneers Award for completing a project and will receive certificates of attendance for every event they attend.
