The Project

The Louisiana Teen Vax Campaign’s Youth Ambassador Program (YAP) promotes the important role young people have in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and keeping their friends and family members from getting sick. The program will provide youth with the facts and benefits of getting the shot, clear up myths, and provide participants with opportunities to inspire and engage their peers with positive messages.
