What is Youth Empowerment Program (YEP!)?
A one- day youth led program designed to empower young adults living with IBD. It is a unique program that brings together a professional IBD advocate speaker and mentors from the CCA community who shared their experiences to mentor and guide their younger peers in managing their condition.
On Sunday 28 October CCA held our first ever Youth Empowerment Program (YEP!) for young people with IBD in Sydney. It was an incredible experience with participants hearing from peers on how to manage their IBD through school, part-time work and university, as well as taking part in a fantastic activity, hosted by the talented team at Aerialize.
