Youth engagement is imperative to success of changing the status quo so that healthy living is the norm. Through youth engagement, HLM will be better equipped to tackle grassroots level issues while providing youth the opportunity to expand their educational development and professional skills. As a volunteer action base, youth can be the immediate force for change at the local level.

In July 2016, both youth & HLM partners committed to a leadership or service role for a proposed HLM Youth Council, or hub for youth advocacy for youth serving organizations across Harris County. HLM partners will help develop youth & connect them to established community leaders, policy makers and elected to advance the priorities of HLM. Through service and community projects, youth will earn service hours and real-world experience that can be applied to their growing list of skills.
