Applications are Now Open for the HEALYAC 2023-24!

The HEALYAC is thrilled to announce that the member registrations for the year 2023-2024 are now open!

The purpose of the HEALYAC is to integrate youth voices, perspectives, and expertise into research on young people’s health and wellbeing. The YAC is how we implement an overarching participatory approach that sees research as with and for youth. The HEALYAC works to shape the priorities of the HEALab and decision-making at the level of specific projects.

In joining the HEALYAC, you will gain valuable leadership and group facilitation skills, and research experience. You will also have an opportunity to collaborate with the London community and receive university-level mentorship from members of the HEALab. With the HEALYAC, you can gain volunteer hours while making an impact on the community!

All high school students (13-19 years old) in London, Ontario are encouraged to apply.

The HEALYAC meets bi-weekly on Thursday from 5:30p.m. to 7:00p.m. In these meetings, members will learn about how research is conducted, advise on ongoing research projects in the HEALab, discuss topics of importance to youth in Canada, and take up initiatives in the community.
