TEACH Academy

Are you looking for an exciting, fast-paced, interactive†way to learn new ideas while earning Act 48 hours, PSNA Contact Hours, and/or CHES Credits during the summer?


The TEACH Academy is the training for you! The Eastcentral, Northeast and Southcentral Pennsylvania Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) are once again sponsoring the TEACH Academy (Teachers Exploring and Advocating Careers in Health). We have planned TEACH Academy 2017 for July 26-July 28, 2017 in Reading, PA.

The Teach Academy is a workshop designed to educate School Counselors, Teachers of all subjects/grade levels, Nurses, Health Educators and anyone who works with youth about the wide range of career opportunities available in the field of healthcare, and how to advise students interested in pursuing these careers.

Participants will be involved in stimulating, interactive activities†to become acquainted with the many opportunities in the field. They will acquire educational resources that can be used in the classroom or as tools to counsel students who are making important career decisions, and they will explore topics relating to the current professionalís shortage areas. Additionally, each participant will have 5 job shadowing experiences on site at the Reading Health System with local practicing healthcare professionals. They will learn, first-hand, about specific health occupations.
