Positions for YOUTH & Interns now available!
Teen Educator & Youth Advocacy Fellowship Applications are currently closed for the 2021-2022 program year. Visit us again in Spring 2022 when applications go live again.
PATCH stands for Providers and Teens Communicating for Health. We believe that for YOU (and other teens) to be your best self, you should be able to have open and honest conversations with a trusted health care provider. But for many, this often isn't the case. That's why PATCH exists! We want to make sure that ALL youth are able to get the health care they need and deserve.
In this program, we rely on YOU to be the expert and share what you know about being a teen, like:
- What are you/your peers' concerns about health care?
- What are the things that make you like or dislike a health care provider?
- How much do you or your friends know about your health care rights as a teen?
Teen Educators gain valuable leadership and advocacy experience, improved communication and presentation skills, access to interesting and up-to-date health information, and an opportunity to use their voice to create statewide change. Being a Teen Educator is paid job and also an impressive accomplishment to include on college applications and job resumes.
