On July 6, WAMU 88.5 interviewed two Identity youth, Paola and Stefano, who are part of our Safety Ambassadors program, about their work to get more people in our community vaccinated.

In Montgomery County, the nonprofit Identity, which serves mostly Latinx youth and their families, has a group of youth — the Safety Ambassadors — who are working on community outreach about vaccines.

“I wanted to be a Safety Ambassador because I wanted to be able to provide information to youth in my community, and also to represent youth,” ambassador Paola Romero, 21, told WAMU through an interpreter.

“In the end, it’s really worth it, so you can protect yourself and your family,” added ambassador Stefano Megna, also 21.
