Youth Media for Building Healthy Communities

Community Health, Youth Voices

Student leader giving back to her community

A few years ago Karla Martinez didn’t think a young person like her could ever make a difference in her community. Karla, 16, began volunteering locally, joining the Environmental Youth Alliance and getting involved with a project assessing affordable housing in Coachella. “I want other youth to see me… as an inspiration to be active and change any injustices they have seen in their community.” Follow the series on teen leaders, on Coachella Unincorporated.
