    Beta testers for selfsea communities

During the seven week pilot, you’ll be invited to join safe, anonymous virtual communities of young people to discuss topics like managing stress, relationships, identity, and beyond. The groups will be facilitated by trained mentors just a few years older, who will share their experiences and resources to support you. Check out the application for more details, and stay tuned for our next beta testing opportunity.

    Additional Collaboration Opportunities

    We believe that an important part of our role in promoting health equity is amplifying youth voices and their leadership and using our institutional influence to ensure more adults are actively listening to young people. In keeping with this commitment, there are many ways for young people to partner with us! Examples include: participating in focus groups, sharing your story – live or recorded – by joining us for media opportunities, and/or partnering with PHE staff to design and present at virtual workshops and conferences. All opportunities are paid and you will be partnered with a PHE staff member for any support needs. If you’re interested, let us know by sharing your email address using this form so we can reach out to you directly when those opportunities arise.
