Every 15 Minutes
The Every 15 Minutes Event at Rhea County High School March 26, 2012. This was a program organized by the Rhea County Anti-Drug Coalition (RCAD) and the Rhea County Sheriff's Department. It was presented to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and/or texting while driving.
information for educators
The Edge program's goal is to offer sexual health education to youth in Rhea and surrounding counties in Southeast Tennessee. Our mission is to equip students with the knowledge and support to abstain from risky behaviors including sexual activity.
We believe the best way to do this is to teach the social, psychological and health benefits of sexual abstinence-until-marriage to youth. Our program is designed to help youth understand the dangers involved in premarital sexual activity, equip teens with accurate information and skills that empower them to make choices consistent with good health and productive lives and teach young people to take a productive approach to solving current problems and choose behaviors that enhance, rather than destroy self-esteem.
We currently offer programs in 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades (and up to 12th grade) through the health/wellnessJROTC or science classes that are age-appropriate and designed to:
1. Engage youth through dynamic, appealing presentations that are informative, relevant, and medically accurate.
We are always seeking opportunities to present our program to students and parents through other venues such as community groups, church groups or specialized classroom settings. If you wish for your students or parents to experience the Edge program, please contact us. We look forward to working together to encourage youth to get the Edge on life.
Get the Edge ON...
