Bee Involved

VOLUNTEER:

The Bee Inspired CAPP Program believes that youth are our future mentors and leaders.
Young people can make healthy, informed decisions when they are given the knowledge,
skills and resources they need. When youth achieve their fullest potential and accomplish
their goals and dreams, dropout rates decrease, academic successes increase, juvenile
detention rates decrease, and youth chose to not engage in risky behaviors more often. We
work diligently to ensure that teens are provided every opportunity to become healthy,
independent and successful by offering comprehensive health education – medically
accurate, age-appropriate, and evidence-based. We whole-heartedly believe that the Bee
Inspired Program is most successful when youth and adults work TOGETHER.
Individuals of all ages can give of their time and talents to help empower ALL youth in
Hamilton, Humboldt, Wright, Hancock, & Cerro Gordo Counties to make healthy informed decisions! Below are
ways that volunteers can play a role! For a list of current volunteer opportunities, contact

DONATE:

The Bee Inspired CAPP Program was developed in 2008, after community agencies and key stakeholders came together and determined a need for comprehensive sexual health education in response to the high rates of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. This program works with teens, parents/caregivers, schools, and community members in Hamilton, Humboldt, & Wright  Counties (as well as the GHV Community School District area in Hancock, & Cerro Gordo Counties) by providing age-appropriate, medically accurate, and evidence based (comprehensive) adolescent health education, information, and services.  The program’s goal is to decrease  sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), teen pregnancies and additional pregnancies to adolescents.

100% of every dollar donated is directly invested in services for this program in the LOCAL service area. Building Families is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax deductible.
