The Teen Health Careers Club will meet virtually on the second Monday of each month from 6:00 p.m. - to 7:30 p.m. The club comprises students in grades 9-12 who are strongly interested in pursuing a career in healthcare.

We are planning to meet virtually/hybrid and have found this model to be effective and allow more students interested in healthcare to attend. We plan to use the Zoom platform, which can be downloaded for free. There will be opportunities for hybrid sessions.

Our curriculum will include the following:
• Health Career Exploration, Leadership, and Service Learning.
• Involvement and engagement in community service, Addressing community health issues.
