  • Tobacco-free schools certification

Contra Costa County Youth Health Coalition (CYHC)

Vision: We envision the Contra Costa County Youth Health Coalition to be a youth-centered and directed group that plays a leadership role in addressing health-related issues. Young people will develop skills that empower them to create healthy environments through awareness and advocacy projects.
