Here’s what we’ve been doing…

Thank you for supporting the Robert Crown Center for Health Education (RCC). While celebrating a milestone year, we are simultaneously diving into the tools and technology that will revolutionize the way RCC is educating youth.

In 2015, we enjoyed an influx of new talent: 2 new department directors, 5 new board members and 4 new educators. In addition, we promoted experienced existing staff to new and expanded roles. Thus positioned, we educated nearly 90,000 students throughout Chicagoland, in eight counties as well as parts of Indiana. Meanwhile, we updated tried-and-true programs, created new ones, and introduced new technologies to deliver them more widely than ever before.

While this is significant, we are not satisfied. We strive for broader impact with our students to increase their knowledge, build their skills, and ensure their confident, healthy behaviors. As importantly, we are working to establish deeper relationships with the schools and families we serve to inform our programs and reinforce our messages.

With renewed energy and deep passion for this work, the Robert Crown Center for Health Education is embarking on transformational plans to more significantly engage young people in FY16. For more information about how RCC is growing and changing, please view our annual report.



It is our vision that all children, regardless of income and ability levels, have the education necessary to inform healthy decision making. It is with the help of our donors that we are able to realize that vision. For more information about how you can help us to help children, contact Development Director Rebecca Gee:
