Youth Health

Adolescence is a time of change starting with physical changes, then social roles, relationships, experiences and expectations. This is a time when youth develop skills through experimentation with activities that may have a positive or negative health impact. It is important to know that positive behaviour patterns now will prevent chronic health issues later in life.

During adolescence youth:

  • Develop a sense of identity and competency
  • Make transitions from school to employment
  • Participate in their community
  • Prepare for personal relationships

Youth who are engaged in meaningful activities expand their outlook on life, develop new ideas and gain great experiences. These opportunities are not only beneficial to youth but also to their families and all of society.
