Tips for a Successful Hydration Research Project

April 24, 2018


Motivated by their success in promoting and advocating for healthy hydration at John Swett High School, teens developed tip sheets for implementing similiar youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) projects.


The tip sheets provide framework for starting YPAR projects and guidance on the following topics:

  • getting started

  • training for success

  • YPAR methods

  • YPAR implementation

  • peer education

  • advocacy

The teens worked with University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources Contra Costa 4-H and nutrition units to develop the tip sheets. Special thanks to Marisa Neelon, MS, RD, Nutrition, Family, & Consumer Sciences Advisor and Charles G. Go, PhD, 4-H Youth Development Advisor for writing this post.
