ABOUT THE PRINCE GEORGE PROGRAM

LETTER TO PARENTS

As a parent and grandparent I am looking forward to meeting your child in May of 2020. I remember the first time we sent off our daughter to just such an event…both of us were anxious. Thus this letter to you. The Rotary Club of Prince George Yellowhead Adventure in Health Care program is designed to develop the potential of high school students in the field of healthcare. It is an exceptional opportunity for youth to explore the field of healthcare in all its different shapes and sizes. While the program is focused on participating in small group activities, it rests on the premise that there may be a spark lit in each person. 

An "ah ha" moment, if you will.


ACCOMODATION

All out of town students will be billeted starting in 2020. 


TRANSPORTION

All group transportation during the program will be provided by professional drivers and government certified vehicles. As well, all host volunteers will have driver abstract clearance in case we require  a private vehicle for emergencies. We will be in constant awareness of flight, train, bus arrivals etc and always have a representative on-hand at the point of arrival. It is imperative that we are advised of any last minute changes from their documented arrival time or method. Departures from Prince George are also documented and we provide the necessary transportation to their point of departure. If there is a need for overnight accommodation after the program is over, it will be looked after. 


GENERAL DECORUM

Your son or daughter are going to have a full, enjoyable and demanding program time wise and extra-curricular activities may diminish their attention to the program.  Our goal is to provide supervision to all our young guests while participating in the program. The expectations of the students will be as if they are attending a school event, with guidelines made available prior to the event.

They need to not only learn but also to have fun. That is our goal, but in a comfortable, safe atmosphere.


Ron J Davis Chair, Adventures in Health Care - 2020

LETTERS FROM PARENTS

Dear  Rotary,


I would  like to take this opportunity to thank you for accepting my daughter into the Adventures in Health Care program. She loved her experience. She came home everyday full of excitement and stories about what she learned. She really enjoyed her time at CNC where they were able to do sonar scans on each other and try putting in IV lines and experimenting with a robot baby. She has always known she wanted to do something in health care but now is determined to be a physician.

I am so impressed with how well organized this program was and appreciate how much work and organization it takes to put on such an event. She loved the food! I have told many people what a great program it is and know of several people who are going to have their child apply next year.

Thank you so much again for providing this great opportunity to my daughter.


Happy momma bear, Prince George, B.C.

Dear Rotary

"As a parent, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all those involved in this program. My daughter was fortunate to attend the 5 day program. She explained to me that it was one of the happiest times she has had through her education. She was able to meet with many other students from around BC who share the same goal as herself. She also came home with a greater sense of self worth and a higher self esteem. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful opportunity! "
