WHO WE ARE
BJC School Outreach and Youth Development provides health prevention education and career exploration opportunities for K-12th grade youth. Our interactive programs equip young people with health knowledge and skills needed to make informed decisions around health behaviors and academic success.

This week-long camp for seventh and eighth graders explores career opportunities in nursing, radiology, pharmacy, respiratory care and more through interactive activities. 

In delivering our programs, we aim to increase our strength as a regional leader in health prevention; our dedication to continuous improvement and our commitment to national health standards.

This two-day conference is offered to school nurses and other community-oriented health professionals that are interested in learning about new and current health information for school-aged children.

TESTIMONIALS

"I have seen students take an interest in their relationships and themselves in regards to protecting themselves and realizing when their relationships or things occurring within their relationships may not always be healthy."

From a teacher

"[This program] taught me a lot that I didn’t know about before. It taught me about relationships and communication skills."

From a student

"You helped me realize how to handle real life situations."

From a student

"Because of this program, I realized I want to figure out more about myself and work on who I am before I begin a relationship."

From a student

"Students choose healthier snacks and are able to verbalize how the food helps their bodies."

From a teacher

"I enjoyed the experiments and the lessons. Some things I learned about are the mouth, stomach, intestines and the esophagus. I also learned ways to keep your heart healthy."

From a student

"I was inspired to become a dietitian because food helps emotion, so if people eat good, they feel good."

From a student

"I am beyond thrilled to know you were at our school to teach and inspire our kids to eat healthier. Thank you for all you do for our kiddos. You and the whole BJC School Outreach and Youth Development team help school nurses stay on top of their game."

From a school nurse
