The Rotary Club of San Clemente will partner with The Wellness & Prevention Center San Clemente (https://wpc-oc.org/ ) which helps youth and families lead healthy and productive lives by providing school based bilingual therapeutic services, education, access to health services and healthy activities for our youth and families that address the social and emotional needs of our youth and helps keep our community safe.
Rotarians and staff and volunteers of the Center seek with the aid of a Mental Health Clinician to provide counseling for up to thirty students with phase of life issues including anxiety and depression, two seminars for parents with a normally average attendance of thirty-five parents per seminar and three vaping intervention sessions that normally addresses up to twenty-five students.
The Wellness & Prevention Center addresses an essential need in San Clemente. Both local high schools and all middle schools are served, and the demographics include 20% Hispanic students and students across all socio-economic demographics. The Center enjoys positive momentum and provides much needed services for critical phase-of-life issues so common among our youth.
The expected result is that students with their families attain closer communication with greater mutual understanding thus enabling them to lead a healthful life.
Beneficiaries are thirty to fifty youth and their families some of whom are encumbered with special needs. (Disabilities). The Annual Report of July 2018 is posted under the Documents Tab.
