CPR Choosing Healthy Lifestyles
The CPR program is a sex education program designed to meet the needs of teens. The decisions made today about sexuality can indeed be "life-saving" ones! This course teaches that abstinence from sexual activity before marriage is not only beneficial, but preferred for the physical, mental, social, and emotional health of the individual. Consequences in each of these areas are discussed.
The Randolph County YMCA offers a curriculum for all Randolph County students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade as well as in high school.
The Randolph County YMCA is very greatful to be able to offer the CPR program. However, without the help of the St. Vincent Randolph Hospital Foundation, this would not be possible.
