Woodbury University is partnering with the National Health Foundation in the LA2050 Grant Challenge to build a youth organizing base in Pico-Union that can address barriers to healthy living. In partnership with West Adams Preparatory High School and Woodbury University’s Agency for Civic Engagement, the team plans to engage high school students in researching and addressing community conditions that impact their health. If selected, the team will be awarded $100,000 to support this effort. The grant challenge is decided by public voting; vote for ‘Youth Organizing for Better Health in Pico-Union’ below:
