Program/Service Notes:

Body Electric biennially administers the Illinois Youth Survey to middle and high schools in East Central Illinois. the survey helps to establish the most prevalent teen health concerns and provides invaluable data that is used by schools, agencies, and community organizations to form strategies for improving the quality of life for youth. With guidance from Body Electric staff, students use he data from Illinois Youth Survey to determine what issues are affecting teens today. From there, they choose and healthy topic, design a prevention or healthy choice message, and brainstorm for appropriate materials. Body Electric purchases needed supplies, and the students work diligently to create their art or writing project. Body Electric travels to schools and community events to tour the projects. These student-created projects provide firsthand insight to the issues teens are facing today. Posters featuring the most current survey data are also created and distributed to participating schools highlighting the positive choices being made by our youth.
