We are excited to offer the 4-H Health Rocks! at Home Curriculum to our Floyd County youth this summer!  Youth will receive a kit with their program supplies, and other fun incentives free of charge!

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.

There will be programs offered for 2 different groups based on age. The program will meet via Zoom Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 13-29.
