Youth Advocates

Be. Do. Lead.

History has taught us that young people are the ones who ignite change. You question the status quo and imagine how things could be done differently. You turn their passion into action.

If we want to get Ontarians of all ages breathing their best, we need your help.

We’re here to guide you through the elements of advocacy and give you the knowledge and skills you need to take action. We want you to lead the way on key breathing issues like smoking, vaping, climate change, and other roadblocks to lung health. But first, get the facts with one of our digital learning opportunities.

If you have 15 to 30 minutes and a hunger for change, these e-modules are for you!
