On Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 10:30am – 1:30pm, East Durham youth and their families will kick off another healthy school year with the East Durham Children’s Initiative (EDCI)’s Youth Leadership Council. This weekly after-school program empowers East Durham elementary and middle school students to improve their own health and their community via youth-led solutions to neighborhood health challenges. Over the next two years, with the support of a $600,000 grant from GSK, 120 young people will join the YLC and improve their health by focusing on nutrition and physical activity, emotional well-being, community safety and sexual health.
