The mission of the Adolescent Health Working Group (AHWG) is to improve health equity to ensure that all youth ages 11 to 24 in California and beyond have unimpeded access to comprehensive, youth-centered, and culturally-based healthcare.
AHWG was established in 1996 and has provided community-centered leadership in bringing forward the health issues of adolescents and young adults to the attention of policy-makers at both the San Francisco County and California State levels.
AHWG is a project of Social Good (our fiscal agent).
AHWG is a coalition of youth-serving providers, young people, and caregivers advocating for harm reduction and policy improvements in the areas of sexual health, mental health, and substance use. Our collective expertise and lived experiences enable AHWG to create innovative resources, trainings, leadership opportunities for youth, and peer-to-peer networks.
