News Highlights Miller Center Empowers Teen Health Advocates
In response to the urgent need for vaccine education and access in underserved populations, Hebrew College’s Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership joined a national initiative called Faith in the Vaccine Ambassadors Program sponsored by the Interfaith Youth Core. 30 Faith in the Vaccine fellows (high school through graduate school) have been working on various projects for the last several months throughout Greater Boston with community partners.
As part of the program (and its predecessor, The COVID-19 Youth Commission) youth ambassadors created a mask contest this summer, receiving several design submissions—including the winning images featured above and below. Learn more about the teen ambassador’s work here.
The Miller Center wishes to thank our local community partners on this and related endeavors: We Got Us, The Community Research Network of Boston Medical Center, and the Center for Teen Empowerment.
“The mask contest is one of several creative initiatives our youth have undertaken with community partners to raise awareness about safety during the pandemic. We are proud of the many young people we are working with who have dedicated time and energy to helping educate and support their peers and others during a very challenging time. We need the thoughtful and caring efforts of youth to help us heal from this devastating illness.”Rabbi Or Rose, Director of the Miller Center for Interreligious Learning & Leadership
