Lynn Youth Health Alliance

The Lynn Youth Health Alliance is a group of teens in Lynn that are committed to improving the health of their community. The Alliance is the result of a youth engagement initiative by the Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance and currently operates at  high schools in Lynn: Lynn English High School and Lynn Classical High School. The Alliance aims to increase Lynn residents' access and ability to make healthy choices in their communities. They are involved in planning educational health/nutrition events around Lynn, and are currently focused on a Healthy Corner Stores Initiative, which encourages convenience stores in Lynn to stock their shelves with healthy options and to advertise those options to patrons.
