GSAHEC offers funding to community-based youth serving organizations to develop and implement Health Careers Summer Camps in Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee, and Sarasota counties. An essential component of our youth programs involves the recruitment of students from underserved, rural, and inner-city communities and underrepresented populations into primary care health fields, including medicine, nursing, and other health professions. The purpose of the summer camps is to expose middle and high school students to health careers, assist them in establishing a career in health, and encourage them to work in underserved areas.
