Youth Empowerment in Action (YEA!) is a research based service-learning program developed by the Center for Character and Citizenship through the generous support of the Missouri Foundation for Health. The program seeks to reduce heath disparities by engaging students in challenging standards-based curriculum, social marketing in their communities, and public policy advocacy. Participation in the YEA! Program components help students 1) internalize prosocial, democratic, and health values, and 2) develop the skills to lead positive change in their communities. Youth Empowerment in Action! development team includes university staff, professional media producers, classroom teachers, and secondary students. They are working to combat tobacco use, negative body image, and childhood obesity that are often promoted by commercial interests and popular culture.
