Lead & Seed

Health + Fitness

Lead & Seed is an intervention for high school youth designed to help participants identify problem priorities in their school or community; discuss the origin of these problems; and identify a theory of change that will dictate the appropriate course of action to affect the physical, economic, legal, or socio-cultural environment. The current Lead & Seed team has determined prescription drug misuse as their priority area for the current year and has developed a 12-month calendar that will focus on education, prevention, and advocacy strategies to eliminate this problem within their community. Nia’s Lead & Seed program is currently the only program of its kind in Virginia.
