Mission

The Poe Center's mission is to educate and empower NC children, youth and their families to make choices that increase positive health behaviors.
The Poe Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to positively impacting the lives of North Carolina youth through health education. Since opening in Raleigh in 1991, the Poe Center has educated more than a million participants from 90 counties using innovative teaching theaters, exhibits and offsite programs.

By engaging in fun, highly interactive lessons, preschoolers through twelfth graders receive information that follows the NC DPI Essential Standards for Healthful Living Education on a variety of health topics, including nutrition, dental health, general health, family life and drug prevention.
