SCHOOL / SITE PARTNERSHIPS
How It Works
Partner schools and sites support implementation of the program by connecting HealthCorps with teens who are interested in participating in the Teens Make Health Happen Club. They also support in the creation of a Wellness Officer Position, usually embedded into ASB or Student Government, and have a commitment to improving the culture of health and wellness on their campus.
HealthCorps then provides a dedicated, trained near-peer college mentor to guide teen participants in the year-long program and a Regional Program Manager who oversees the college mentor, supports regional wellness events and serves as your main point of contact.
The teens that get involved have the opportunity to engage in personal health lessons and spread the health and wellness message cross campus through lunchtime demonstrations, hosting step challenges, participating in service events and more! In the spring they go through a design thinking journey to develop and submit a community improvement project to the Project Health Innovation Showcase and earn funding to bring their ideas to life.
Partnerships Can Look Like
A school or district relationship – we work with both public and charter schools, primarily serving middle and high school students.
An after school setting where teens come to engage in extracurricular activities such as a club, sports, or service events. These settings can be directly connected to a local school or not.
Bringing together a group of interested teens virtually to learn, engage and grow with the HealthCorps program.
HealthCorps partners with organizations and students from a range of different settings and are open to additional ideas if you believe your site may be a successful fit.
