Details

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.

Volunteers will help beautify the PlayWELL Park, a 1.5 acre, one of a kind health themed playground. Also, volunteers will plant crops in 9 beds in the Poe and Grow Garden that will benefit the community.

*Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty as well as close-toed shoes.

*Please bring ample water and sunscreen/bugspray if needed.

*It would be wonderful if your staff could bring along work gloves, shovels, rakes, wheel barrows, & garden spades from home. The Poe Center has a few of these items on hand (just not enough for all that needs to be accomplished).

Rain Plan

In the event of light rain, this project will continue as planned. In the event of heavy rain, volunteers will work on building beautification projects indoors.
