VIRTUAL HERO’S 4 HEALTH SUMMER PROGRAMMING
Vision Board Activity

Welcome to our 2020 Virtual Hero’s 4 Health Young Adult Summer Programming! We all know that setting and achieving goals is a life skill necessary for success and happiness. Creating a vision board helps our youth learn how to set goals, visualize their dreams, and stay focused on reaching their goals. Your vision board is all about you! Think outside the box and put your own twist to it! If you don’t have any magazines, feel free to draw on your vision board. There is no wrong or right way to do this activity. This self-esteem boosting activity is great to do at home with your family or with friends. Be sure to showcase your boards and be proud! After watching this video and filling out an evaluation, feel free to pick up a free card stock paper and glue stick from your local library in Wharton County (Wharton, East Bernard, El Campo, and Louise). Let’s send a big thank you to The Prairie View A&M Cooperative Extension Program and The Walmart Foundation for funding this video. Stay safe and healthy. Enjoy!!

WEEK 1: HEROES 4 HEALTH

El Campo and Louise Library Summer Programming
Location: Wharton County Library in El Campo and Louise
TX Drugs and Alcohol with our special guest from The El Campo Police Department and Wharton County Police Department: Officer Mark Biskup, Officer Beemer, and Officer Bill Holt

During our first week of Heroes 4 Health we were honored to have  3 guest speakers. The audience was really excited to see Officer Beemer (the K9 police dog)! Both officers gave a well received presentation about the risks and affects of indulging in drugs and alcohol. Even though Wharton County is a tight knit community, drug awareness is an important factor here. Officer Beemer gave us a show! He is very intelligent and trained to detect illegal substances. Every participant left with a drug free coloring page, sticker, pencil, and drug free pledge. Again, thank you officers!
