Belmont County 21st Century Grant

Partners with  Belmont  Nursing Program

St. Clairsville, OH (April 23, 2012) – Thanks to the 21st Century Grant, through the East Central Ohio Educational Service Center, Belmont College ADN (Associate Degree Nursing) students are able to implement and reinforce health and nutrition programs in the classrooms of local elementary and middle schools.

The 21st Century Grant is a five-year grant written to create afterschool intervention programs targeting middle school and high school students. The rationale for the program is to provide postive youth activites as well as parent and family enrichment opportunities through community partners such as Belmont College.

According to Sue White, Assistant Director of Nursing at Belmont, “This grant is providing clinical opportunities for Belmont College ADN students to provide health-related and nutritional workshops using educational resources for  elementary, middle, and high school students.” 

Some of the following educational strategies are being used to target positive youth development: food and nutrition; exercise and fitness; drug and alcohol awareness; first Aid/CPR; prevention of dating violence and bullying; safety; and enrichment of family life.
