    Thank you for attending Peer Health Exchange LA’s Celebration of Health.

    Our work would not be possible without the nearly 100 philanthropic, civic, and youth advocate leaders who joined us at the No Name last night to celebrate youth health and wellness. 

    Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $70,000 to support a decade of empowering young people with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make healthy decisions. 

    All young people deserve the knowledge, skills, and access to resources they need to make healthy decisions. Health education improves young people’s health outcomes, high school graduation rates, and life opportunities.
