Youth-led Participatory Action Research (YPAR) has changed the after-school programs at the YMCA of Honolulu. Teens are now engaged in identifying solutions to the issues they see in their communities.  The approach has built leadership among several dozen teens.

YPAR guides teens through an eight-step process that includes:

data collection, data analysis, and planning action.

Participants get hands-on, project-based learning experience in public health approaches.
