LIVE LIFE THE D.O. WAY
Youth Advocates & Leadership
Day one Youth Advocates (DOYA) develop leadership skills that allow them to be powerful catalysts for change within their social circles and communities. DOYAs attend public meetings, provide youth perspective in City decision-making, and take action on teen and community issues. Youth are recruited from schools, youth groups, parks, recreation centers, parent-referrals, community organizations, and community events.
Environmental Public Policy
Public policy and environmental prevention is essential to build healthier schools, neighborhoods and communities. Day One assists communities, as key agents of change, as well as policymakers, in gathering relevant data and information, analyzing research findings, identifying policy options and implementing public health policy that improves quality of life for all.
Motivated by love, Day One is passionate about the people and communities we work in. We believe in the potential of humanity and know that by caring, helping, and loving those we work with, regardless of their past, we are able to make a difference. We are driven by the knowledge that each person really can make a difference. And that each day can be day one, of a better more meaningful and purpose-driven life.
