Middle School Students
Here are a few of the programs that we offer middle school students...
HEROES Health Career Connection: A Teen Health Career Club
October – May
Our Teen Health Career Club is for 8th grade students that are interested in learning more about careers in healthcare. It meets once a month from 6pm – 8pm. Students will thoroughly enjoy health science workshops, field trips, health career speakers, games and so much more! Applications for the 2017-2018 Health Career Club will be available in August 2017.
HEROES Summer Program
This one-week residential program is for current 8th grade students who have an interest in pursuing a career in healthcare. Students will interact with healthcare professionals and participate in an array of medical science workshops designed to expose them to various careers in healthcare.
Baby Sitting Workshop: SafeSitter®
SafeSitter® prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.
Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who's choking, and helpful information like what to do if there's severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use CPR manikins to practice CPR and choking rescue!
If you are interested in participating in the HEROES program, here's how to apply:
- 1. Students in 8th - 12th grade, with at least a 3.0 GPA, should add their name to the e-mailing list. Students that are already apart of the HEROES program may get first dibbs on the programs, however, we are always looking to fill empty spaces. Add your name to the Charlotte AHEC Email List and we will send you information on upcoming programs.
- 2. Wait to receive an application for the next program. The HEROES programs are outlined here for high school students and middle school students. The application will arrive about 1 month prior to the event.
