Lowell Community Health Center’s Teen Building Leadership Opportunities in the Community (BLOCK) supports the healthy development of young people and empowers them to become leaders in the community. Programs include:

Youth Reaching Out

The Youth Reaching Out (YRO) consists of youth serving agencies within the city of Lowell. The group is focused on engaging youth and encouraging them to better their community. Youth Reaching Out’s main focus is violence prevention through strategic activities and meaningful dialogue. There is power in our voices, and Youth Reaching Out enables young people to raise theirs.

Healthy Teens, Healthy Relationships

Making Proud Choices is a science-based curriculum which provides sexual health education. Participants work in small groups with staff to discuss values, human growth and development, relationships, dealing with family stress and issues related to the social and emotional transitions from adolescence to adulthood. Participants develop skills in communication and decision making through interactive activities, games, and discussions. By creating a safe place for sharing, teens are able to share personal experiences in a confidential setting.

Valuing Our Insights for Civic Engagement (VOICES)

VOICES provides a space for youth to explore their personal experiences and identities and develop leadership skills that they can use in their individual lives and communities to make changes they are interested in seeing.
