Young Health Programme Scholarship

Wherever we work in the world, we aim to make a positive impact in our local communities and collaborate to address the health issues that most affect people at a local, national and global level. Our Young Health Programme (YHP) embodies this belief. Through YHP we work to address the growing burden of non-communicable disease (NCDs) – conditions like type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart and respiratory disease. We do it with a unique focus on youth and primary prevention. Evidence shows that many NCDs are linked to behaviours that begin during adolescence: tobacco use, the harmful use of alcohol, physical inactivity and unhealthy diets. Once behaviours are formed, they are difficult to break. Through YHP, we aim to engage and empower young people with information so that they can make healthy choices today that will lead to better health later in life.

But YHP is not just about health education. We also work with more than 30 partner organisations worldwide to put adolescent health on the healthcare agenda. We invest in research to generate new evidence that fills the gaps in our knowledge about adolescent health and risk behavior activity.  And most importantly, we work to provide youth with a voice. We aim to place youth at the core of everything we do. Young people have a powerful voice in identifying their own health needs as well as planning and delivering solutions. As Alyssa Frampton, YHP Youth Ambassador and One Young World Ambassador says, “Not about us, without us.”

We are proud to provide charitable support to One Young World to engage more youth in our efforts to address the issue of adolescent health and disease prevention.  We are collaborating with One Young World to offer ten scholarships to inspiring young leaders to attend the One Young World Summit 2017 in Bogotá, Colombia.

Who can apply?

We are looking for young people who work for or are involved with a non-governmental organisation, social enterprise, community based organization, or who are individuals making an impact through advocacy activities or direct programming related to adolescent health. The successful scholars will join ten other YHP delegates who are already involved with the programme, as peer educators, advocates, NGO partners or community youth leaders. In addition to attending the Summit, YHP scholars will participate in a pre-Summit workshop to meet the delegation, share information about their background and get prepared for what will be an incredible experience in Bogotá.
