Global Youth Service Day 

 

 

O V E R V I E W

The Zika preventionworkshop will be used as a tool for learning about the risk of the virus and how to prevent it from spreading in a local way.  The workshop will inform students of different schools, about the risk of the Zika virus and to encourage students to spread the word and knowledge in the prevention of it, in the school, neighborhood and the community in general.

Through an information workshop the students will learn all the factor and details of this virus and will learn ways to mitigate and eliminate the Zika infection risk.

Also the students will create media material to support the campaign, through photography, the students will create an entire visual campaign to be shown in the school, and open to the public (in the local library, city hall and health center), as a way to encourage the creativity of the students oriented to public service.

The workshop is designed for 25 students from ages between 12 to 17.
