A Message from the Director
YHP Champions Eligible for SCHPC Mini-Grant

SCHPC has been the Community Mobilizing Organization for United Way of Delaware and AstraZeneca for two years now! During that time the coalition has worked to establish partnerships that enhance youth programming that targets families and their children ages 10-16. Some of the programs we offered included: Family Fun Nights, Youth in Government, Art Programming and Weird Science. SCHPC has done much of that work with and through key strategic partnerships in the community. This engagement helped agencies/organizations understand the needs of our youth and work to expand programs and supports. - READ MORE - NEWSLETTER - PDF
