Teachers sometimes forget that they too are "participatory citizenship volunteers." Without their vision and their understanding for the need of extracurricular instruction, we would not be able to provide the kind of quality programs they feel is worth their valuable time out of the classroom. They are the ones who know the importance of exposing their students to additional educational and cultural activities. It is to them that we owe our deepest gratitude for their dedication in the field of education.

Audrey Mallory, Twiggs Co. HS
Ron,Thank you for giving me this unique opportunity to work with students that were interested in public health. I believe the Youth Health Conference increased awareness on important public health issues to both high school students and volunteers. It exposed students to interesting everyday issues, potential career paths, and taught them the importance of a healthy life-style, from sexual behaviors to eating right. Thanks again and I hope I will see you at the follow-up session.
