Health Resource Center (HRC)
Resources for Kids
The Health Resource Center Program supports young people’s overall health and well-being. For many students, the Health Resource Center is a place where they can get help and support in a caring and non-judgmental environment. The Health Resource Center Program helps to link students with school and community resources to meet their needs. Specifically, this program is for teens aged 13-19 years old.
The Health Resource Center Program plays an important role in preventing school dropouts. Teen pregnancy and parenting are major causes of school dropout, particularly for female students. The National Dropout Prevention Center includes teen pregnancy prevention efforts as a part of a comprehensive effort to prevent school dropouts. By supporting young people in making healthy decisions and preventing teen pregnancy, the Health Resource Center Program helps them to stay in school and concentrate on building a bright future.
The Health Resource Center Program helps young people make responsible choices to stay safe and healthy. All students who visit the Health Resource Center will receive counseling and education around abstinence, HIV and STDs, pregnancy prevention, and other sexual health issues. The Health Resource Center Program also supports students in developing strong decision-making and communication skills in order to build safe and healthy relationships.
