Health Quest.

Now in our tenth year of service to Vermont, the region of New England and the country, Center for Health and Learning (CHL) has become a leader in school and community initiatives in comprehensive health.

At CHL we support and promote the use of the Coordinated School Health model developed by the CDC, a comprehensive framework used to integrate school and community health.

Never straying from our mission to promote the health and well being of children, families, schools and communities, we have been building and implementing educational resources for the field. From professional development training and technical assistance to school curricula development and evaluation resources, CHL continues to deliver programs and services in comprehensive and coordinated strategic health initiatives.

At the crossroads between public health and education, we offer trainings and technical assistance in the following wellness-related topics and skills:

  • Alcohol, tobacco and other drug education with ATOD Education Tools & Resources;
  • Nutrition education;
  • Pedestrian and bicycle safety;
  • Puberty and sexuality education;
  • HIV and sexually transmitted disease prevention;
  • Youth suicide prevention; grief and bereavement support;
  • Conflict resolution and cultural competency;
  • Life skills training;
  • School climate, including school discipline, bullying & harassment, internet safety;
  • Standards and skills-based health education and research-based curricula;
  • Strategic Prevention Framework;
  • Resiliency development
  • Adolescent brain development;
  • Prevention ethics;
  • Coalition development;
  • Sexual harassment training;
  • Eating disorders;
  • Media literacy and responsibility;

Whether you are an educator committed to achieving optimal student learning, an administrator interested in providing professional development for your staff or a community project manager in need of assistance with the design of a new initiative or evaluation of an existing program, the experienced staff, trainers and consultants at CHL are prepared to support your efforts to create a healthier, safer environment for families, schools and communities.
