Become a What the Health advocate

What the Health is a youth-led movement in Oxford County to generate awareness about health issues that matter to youth. With a focus on tobacco-related issues, our goal is to help you make informed decisions about your health and wellbeing and to join the movement!


Pay it forward!

What the Heath provides training and guidance to help create leaders in our community and to build stronger and healthier communities. Our program focuses on education, community mobilization and advocacy. As a What the Health advocate you will be responsible for spreading the word on health issues that matter to you.

Are you a great public speaker, good with computers, artistic, or a dynamite event planner? Whatever your strengths are, you have something valuable to contribute and help mobilize the What the Health movement!


How to participate

What the Health advocates earn rewards for their work! Our rewards program will allow you to take action your own way! You get to decide where, when, and how you want to work. The program is entirely customizable to work for you. Your efforts are rewarded in cash, prizes and volunteer hours!
