There's no better way to engage the community than by bringing the community together. Our special events, presentations and camps are geared to reinforce our mission...while we have some fun doing it! We have a little something for everyone...mothers looking for the ideal lunch date with their daughters, camps for the science nut or a presentation to provide tips on how to talk to your kids about some of the uncomfortable subjects.
Today--as young people are faced with many pressures we didn’t encounter in our own adolescence--the work we do is more challenging and important than ever before. In order to more deeply impact the children we educate, we ask for your financial support. The donation you make to RCC health education contributes to enhanced curriculum, innovative delivery models, and opportunities for disadvantaged students all over Chicagoland to make better-informed choices.
