What is the SH101 High School Student Advisory Board internship?

  • Student Health 101 is an online, bi-monthly health and wellness magazine distributed to more than 15 schools in the US.  Each issue is customized for our client schools with their own logos and school resources.
  • All students on our board have a strong interest in health and wellness, especially issues affecting the high school population. Our definition of wellness is broad: In addition to the usual health, fitness, and nutrition topics, it includes budgeting, academic skills, relationships, preparing for college and the workforce, time management, and more.
  • Our student advisors are from diverse backgrounds and regions across the US.
  • This is an unpaid, one-year commitment (June 2015-June 2016).
