There is a close relation between vocational choice and human's integral health. Current practices in vocational guidance (VG) acts from childhood to retirement, promoting autonomy and preparing individuals to build-up their own life projects. The Ministry of Health highlights the importance of life project to promote adolescent's health, since this is a very vulnerable group. The objective of this study is, through theorist articulations, to discuss VG's interventions that may impact adolescent's health. The national and international literature was consulted leading to the conclusion that youth protagonism is like a bridge between VG and health promotion. The practices in VG that promotes self-knowledge, vocational development and social responsibility can contribute to public policies aimed at promoting young people's health.
