Student-Led Storytelling to Teach Communities the Power of Health Prevention
The Get Healthy Guam Coalition exists to raise awareness, educate young people, and motivate communities to live healthy, engaging lifestyles. By spreading messages of hope and health, today’s students can spark positive change within their families and local communities.
Our organization has proudly participated in various preventive health-related projects. In our latest endeavor, we’ve partnered with Children for Health (CfH) to create compelling storybooks about community-specific health and wholeness topics for students ages 10 to 14.
- Be written by students in collaboration with teachers and topic experts
- Be illustrated by CfH’s in-house artist
- Be strategically designed using the participatory inquiry method to spark curiosity
- Create a depth of understanding
- Mobilize youth to become agents of change in their communities
Each book will have a primary story for older students and teachers, a lighter story for youth to share with younger children, and additional hands-on activities for further growth and exploration. The theme of our first storybook will be on resilience
We invite you to partner with us, in or outside of Guam. Whether you’re a teacher, club leader, or student who wants to get involved, or you’d like to become a Partner in Prevention by funding an upcoming project, we’d love to connect with you. We believe that, together, we can make a remarkable impact on our world.
