(previously known as Youth Health Advisory Council)
The Vermont Youth Health Advisory Council, newly named Vermont RAYS (Raise Awareness for Youth Services), is a nimble group of adolescents and young adults committed to improving adolescent health and well-being in Vermont. We aim to amplify the youth voice in health care systems throughout Vermont.
We meet once a month to discuss project activities. The Vermont RAYS will offer youth perspectives on issues that affect adolescent and young adult health care. The council will be youth driven, with decisions made by the council and supported by council facilitators.
Our current focus is to collaborate with the Youth Health Improvement Initiative (YHII) at Vermont Child Health Improvement Program (VCHIP) as they coach Vermont primary care practices working to improve health services for adolescents and young adults.
