East Cleveland Teen Collaborative

East Cleveland Teen Collaborative Teen Ambassadors
Funded by a grant from the Kresge Foundation, the East Cleveland Teen Collaborative (ECTC) is an initiative led by the Department of Public Health and Research in partnership with community-based agencies to address issues impacting the health of adolescents in East Cleveland. 

In 2013, the ECTC selected 22 Teen Ambassadors and launched its second annual summer leadership academy, connecting students to local health and wellness resources as well as community organizations that provide financial and employment resources and opportunities for youth. The Teen Ambassadors created public service announcements geared towards violence prevention, bullying and the importance of community involvement. They also expanded their work with the City of East Cleveland by participating in community service projects such as gardening, a community harvest festival and hosting an Artistic Expression event highlighting original poetry and art works produced by East Cleveland High School students.
