Tips for a Successful Hydration Research Project

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.
