Health Rocks Intermediate and Beginner levels

What is Health Rocks!?

  • Health Rocks! applies 4‑H’s successful Positive Youth Development model with life skill development and decision-making philosophy to the challenge of reducing tobacco, alcohol, e-cigarette/vaping, and drug use.
  • Through the power of youth/adult partnerships, Health Rocks! instills in youth participants invaluable confidence and communication skills necessary to make responsible decisions and develop the internal strength to resist risky behaviors.
  • Health Rocks! utilizes the cornerstone 4‑H “Teens as Teachers” model to build leadership skills, leveraging the influence of young people by engaging teens to empower their peers and families to help establish life-long healthy habits.

Training opportunity

Health Rocks! requires 10 hours of training prior to your teaching. This is a hybrid version of the training, which means that 6 hours will be done virtually prior to 4 hours of face-to-face training.

The upcoming in-person training dates (only attend one):

  • September 26th from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. (Richmond County Extension Office)
  • September 28th from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. (Burke County Extension Office)
  • September 30th from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (Nash County Extension Office)

 

Training is open to 4-H Agents, 4-H Program Assistants, and educators. We ask that educators go through their county 4-H agent to register.

Registration closes Sept. 14. Signup as soon as possible, 6 hours of pre-training are necessary before the in-person session.
