HNC CEO Teen-Parent Retreat
February 10-12, 2012
They got a job, bought insurance, fed the family, bought a house and had unexpected financial emergencies all in one day! Teens, sibling and parents got together February 10-12, 2012 at the Rockfish Retreat and Conference Center for the Teen & Parent CEO Retreat. The program was facilitated by Baxter and was designed to help teens develop skills in career planning and financial independence. Thirty-three people attended the retreat that was planned by Hemophilia of South Carolina, Palmetto Health HTC and Hemophilia of North Carolina.
CEO (Career, Education & Opportunities) Modules for the retreat included focusing on goal setting, career planning and finances. There was also a great session that was a team-based college/trade school research challenge and the Reality Store® where teens got to shop for all those necessities in life.
We all enjoyed the facilities at Rockfish who were great hosts and kept the fun flowing with a campfire, high ropes course, climbing tower, zipline and team building. Also, through the generosity of Paraclete XP Skyventure who provided free fly time to our group, many were able to experience indoor skydiving at this world-class facility under the guidance of professionals.
Our many thanks to Baxter for their continued support of the community.
