Health & Wellness
Throughout the year, the High Achievers participate in a weekly health-education class that is age-appropriate. Youth are taught how and when to make healthy lifestyle choices and to become advocates for healthy lifestyles, teamwork and interpersonal skills. It is our hope that these skills and knowledge may inspire new career choices, and critical thinking skills, especially as they explore and experience the media.
The High Achievers Program also partners with GC professors each semester which allows the High Achievers to interact with college students while they deliver health education components. Youth not only learn about health issues but they have fun while doing so.
