WELCOME TO THE
GOODHEALTH PROGRAM

We Believe Everyone Can Achieve Their Fullest Potential

The vision of the GoodHealth Program is to build the capacity of each participant to manage their life healthfully as an individual, community member, peer, and family member in a way that empowers them to become their own advocates so that they can develop resistance, strategies to peer pressure, self-advocacy techniques, nutritional knowledge, and work experience.

RUBI DENIZ

Intern 2017-2018

“This internship is what you make out of it. There is a great opportunity for growth but you have to be willing and open. The impact you make may feel small sometimes with this population but it is significant. I became a more refined individual with a purpose thanks to GoodHealth”

“It was a great experience that was eye-opening and taught me many ways to present and keep the class interested and participating in the lesson. It taught me a lot more patience and that one must put in the time and effort if they want to succeed in this internship.”
