About the Program
The teenage years are challenging and one’s ability to make healthy, sound decisions are constantly being tested. The mission of the Belmont Hill Health and Wellness program is to empower young men to lead a healthy physical, mental, and social lifestyle. The weekly class provides students an opportunity to discuss a variety of relevant topics related to the on-going changes and challenges they are encountering. The curriculum is progressive in nature and addresses issues that are timely in a student’s development with topics that include:
- Nutrition, relationships, safety, sleep, exercise, stress management, sexuality, consent, substance use and abuse, and social media.
- Encouragement and promotion of self-reflection and personal growth through small-group discussion, situational learning, role-playing, reviewing current media, and journaling.
Health and wellness classes meet once a week for seven weeks. Students are assigned to a fall, winter or spring season class.
