WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
This is a great opportunity for students to encourage good choices for their peers, while demonstrating leadership (think college applications). Projects, presentations, health education, community service, while encouraging substance misuse prevention will give participants knowledge and skills for life.
PERKS! Your positive leadership is rewarded with some pretty amazing perks such as scholarship opportunities, discounts at local retailers, the opportunity to go to Nashville in July 2020 for Mid-Year Training and more!
COHASSET MINDS MATTER
Our Minds Matter is a student-led movement to change the culture around mental health. Cohasset Youth Ambassadors volunteered to become a chapter of this group.
