COVID-19 Youth Champions Course

Press Release

Published on 23 April 2021

The COVID-19 Youth Champions Course is a new initiative with the purpose of establishing an additional channel of engagement with young people across the county regarding COVID-19 prevention, correct information, and messaging, and promoting vaccinations.

The course is jointly planned with Public Health, Warwickshire County Council's Marketing and Communications Team, and several other partner agencies that will be involved in the delivery of presentations.

As this is the pilot course, we are looking for young people, aged between 16-18, from across the county to complete the course, provide feedback for any improvements they feel need to be made or changes to the course and to become first COVID-19 Youth Champions. These champions will receive weekly information updates from Warwickshire County Council and will embark upon their own individual COVID-19 action plan.

The course is free of charge. It is non-accredited, but participants receive a certificate and will be reimbursed for their time on completion, as a thank you.

The course dates are:

  • 27th April 2021- 4:00-5:30pm
  • 4th May 2021- 4:00-5:30pm
  • 11th May 2021- 4:00-5:30pm
  • 18th May 2021- 4:00-5:30pm
