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.
