  • For close to 20 years, Al Vega has worked primarily in the youth development field with a focus on strengthening the skills and leadership of Boston area teens to become more engaged citizens in their communities. He joined MassCOSH in 2009 in an administrative role and quickly got involved in many of MassCOSH's programs (Teens Lead @ Work & the Immigrant Worker Center) through health and safety training (hazard & body mapping, worker rights, etc.) and campaigns that directly impacted the most vulnerable workers from all walks of life across the city and state. He has worked to make change in schools and HeadStart buildings through the Healthy Schools Initiative. He has extensive experience working with coalitions which are crucial to MassCOSH's work and plays a key role in the Healthy Schools program which looks at many aspects of environmental health including: reduction of asthma triggers, Integrated Pest Management, improving indoor air quality and the formation of environmental health committees/wellness councils. He advocates and identifies school based champions to make this a priority at individuals schools but also works with allies and school department partners to replicate some of these initiatives throughout the district.
