Youth development workers have a key role to play in delivering a holistic approach to health promotion. The program starts by defining youth in the context of health. It continues by looking at why it is important to involve young people in the planning and implementation of any program that targets them, and how to promote youth participation.

You will also look closely at some of the contemporary health issues that affect young people, such as HIV AIDS, nutrition and diet, sexual and reproductive health and drug abuse.
