"Your Voice Matters" in Valdez

The Valdez LeadOn team had planned in- person activities and events to focus on healthy teen relationships but when COVID-19 closed the community, they had to adapt their project. The youth identified several community needs – the Food Bank was dealing with pretty bare shelves, and youth who usual got snacks at school weren’t able to access them – and decided to put together youth snack bags for the Food Bank. Because local youth might be feeling isolated without in-person school, they included a wristband reading “Your Voice Matters” and a sticker, along with a variety of snacks.


Great job, Valdez team!
