Each week in the 14 BHC places, young people knit together experiences at school, at work, at home and in their neighborhoods to tell stories about how health happens. This month, they investigate proposed changes to the Academic Performance Index, and cover a transportation issues forum in Merced. They make connections between immigration rights and gay marriage, or between violence in our neighborhoods and abroad. Youth reporters interview local government, create PSAs on water conservation and kayak the Salton Sea with elected officials.
