FACES for the Future is excited to share the news that we have been awarded a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to support youth-focused peer vaccine education. Leveraging our existing Public Health Youth Corps program, we will be training young people in California, New Mexico, Colorado, and Michigan on how to talk to their friends, families, and community members about the COVID vaccine and about other ways to stop the spread of COVID like social distancing and mask-wearing. 300 students will participate in the program and will be supported with stipends, certifications in CPR/First Aid, Mental Health First Aid, Stop the Bleed training, and Narcan/Opioid Overdose Intervention training. We want to thank all of our FACES program partners for working with us to support FACES students in this way. Also thank you to Public Health Institute and our partners at CACHE for supporting our navigation of this award. And of course, thank you to our partners at HRSA for believing in the power of young people as much as we do! We look forward to sending you updates as we implement this important work.
