The close of the year is always an introspective time for me. I think back at what the year has brought and think ahead to what I hope the upcoming year will bring – personally and professionally. 2018 has been an intense year for our Get Healthy San Mateo County collaborative. More people and organizations are now engaged in advancing healthy communities through transportation and mobility options, increased attention to housing stability, sustainable food systems, and social-emotional environments in schools.
The deadline to apply for the SMC Youth Commission Request for Proposals is rapidly approaching—January 24 before 5PM PST. The SMC Youth Commission increases awareness of and advocates for youth issues, advises the Board of Supervisors, presents policy recommendations, and creates projects that serve the community. SMC Health is seeking a provider committed to the youth development and well-being of all youth in San Mateo County to manage the SMC Youth Commission for the next three years.
If you are in high school and are interested in mentoring younger kids to promote physical activities and healthy food, you can apply to the Healthy Living Ambassadors Program. If you have a child in high school, are an educator or are connected to students in any way, please share this opportunity with them!
