Health Promotion falls under the auspices of the Community Wellness (CW) Division - Health Promotion Team at the Latin American Youth Center. The CW division exists to support the development of individual, organizational, and community capacity to promote health and wellness, build a culture of peace, and address issues of homelessness. It does so by using a positive youth development framework that integrates skill building, awareness raising, harm reduction, transforming relationships, community engagement, advocacy, and opportunities for youth leadership. Within this framework, the Health Promotion Team focuses on promoting health and preventing unhealthy behaviors among youth. It does this through a holistic, integrated, and multilevel approach that engages and empowers youth, their families, and their communities to maintain healthy behaviors or to change unhealthy behaviors.
