Engaging Youth for Positive Change

Since 2005, EYPC youth-led groups have created smoke-free public places, safer parties and gatherings, restricted alcohol use at community events, and much more. Learn more about EYPC and Illinois’ Social Science Learning Standards with our EYPC/Learning Standards ‘crosswalk’ document.
