Youth Committee Hosts Sugary Drink Awareness Workshops at Afterschool Sites
Community Health Services (CHS) team and the Sugar Grant Youth Committee have been hosting several workshops this May to spread awareness around sugary drink consumption and to promote our social media campaign. The Youth Committee worked hard to tailor the workshop to different audiences, including to other high school peers in CPC Manhattan’s Learn and Earn program, as well as to 8-10 year olds in CPC’s school-age programs at PS 124 and PS 130.
The interactive workshops included engaging videos, sugary drink ranking and matching games in which participants had to guess how many grams of sugar are in different drinks, and even a Kahoot! quiz game for high school students. In all workshops, the Youth Committee also discussed the questions and answers on our sugary drink campaign postcard.
