HNC & HSC Teen-Parent CEO Retreat
August 16-18, 2013
Hemophilia of North Carolina gratefully acknowledges the pledge of support from the following companies for the 2013 HNC Teen & Parent Retreat:
A special program for teens ages 13-18 and their parents/guardians
If you haven't been asked yet where you want to go to college or what you want to do with your career, you will soon. We at Hemophilia of North Carolina and Hemophilia of South Carolina want to help you find an answer to those questions. That's why we are offering Career, Education, & Opportunities (CEO) – a program developed for the teen hemophilia and clotting disorder community by the Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center working in partnership with Baxter. The program includes a teen track and a separate parent track.
The professionally-facilitated CEO program is designed to help teens ages 13-18 years develop skills in career planning and financial independence. This weekend will offer three CEO modules. Modules will focus on goal setting, career planning, and understanding finances. Participants will experience a team-based college research challenge, and the interactive, real-world simulation called the "Reality Store®". The newest component will help teens to focus on setting self-goals, both short- and long-term, among other skills.
The parent track will provide tools to assist parents in talking with their child after the event to reinforce concepts learned, including career planning and coaching.
Sunday morning after breakfast HNC, HSC, and Palmetto Health will make a special presentation for teens and parents. At noon on Sunday everyone will get an all day pass to the nearby U.S. National Whitewater Center where a boxed lunch will be served.
Teens are encouraged to bring a friend along in the same age range, space permitting. This program is open to teens with bleeding disorders or teens of parents with a bleeding disorder. Siblings, ages 13-18, are also welcome to attend the program. One parent/guardian is required to attend the program.
Included: One hotel room per family (can accommodate up to 4 people) on Friday and Saturday nights, plus all meals (Friday dinner; Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner; Sunday breakfast and boxed lunch). Activities include an all-day pass to the U.S. National Whitewater Center on Sunday. Space is limited; reservations will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.
