At PATCH La Crosse we are passionate about improving adolescent health care experiences and, since 2018, we've been working directly with youth and health care professionals to do just that! 

Each year, 10-12 high school students are hired as Teen Educators to lead educational workshops with peers and health care professionals.


These youth experts are responsible for cultivating open and honest dialogue about adolescent health and prove that young voice do matter, because THEY are the experts.

Thanks to Our Supporters!

Our work would not be possible without the support from individuals, organizations, and businesses in our community! From donating time and energy to money and materials we simply couldn't do it without these people! You can show your support by joining our Community Advisory Team, Donating to PATCH, or even scheduling a workshop!
