Solano Youth Coalition accepting applications – Times Herald

The Coalition is a partnership of students from each town in Solano County. The students “raise awareness by advocating safe and healthier choices in communities through open conversations, participation, and collaboration among a new generation of youth,” said Program Manager Johanna Nowak-Palmer.

The students choose which issues and subjects to tackle, according to Ken Scarberry, director for youth development.

Projects they’ve spearheaded have been an award-winning documentary about the effects of gambling on young people, tobacco use prevention and awareness, and even putting together a water filtration system where students could get clean water without using campus fountains, Scarberry said.
