This internship is a leadership opportunity for students who are interested in inspiring healthy changes within their school communities. Students conduct youth-led participatory action research projects that investigate particular areas of their school or community that they would like to see become healthier. The ProFRESHionals are ambassadors to the Project EAT program at their site. They organize school-wide healthy events and media campaigns, as well as participate in various state and nation-wide youth food and health conferences.
