YH4L Junior Board 

Young Hearts working to save Young Hearts

The YH4L Junior Board was created in 2014, for local teens to become involved in the mission of the Young Hearts for Life® program.The board is made up of 75 students from 15 area schools.  Activities range from education about Sudden Cardiac Death, assisting in registration of students, attending area heart screenings, making educational videos for high schools, and fundraising for ECGs for students.

The Executive Board meets the second Sunday of each month at 6:00 pm.  The entire Junior Board meets immediately following the Executive Board at 6:30 pm.  Meetings consist of education, service, and planning for future events.
