Online Programs

For your convenience and safety, the Poe Center has converted some of our most popular programs to an online format. Poe’s online programs offer a convenient option for schools and organizations who can not travel to the Poe Center or have our health educators come to your location.

We can promise the same great content, the same enthusiastic staff, and engaging activities that make the Poe Experience so valuable, unique, and effective.

Here’s how it works:

    • Pick a program/program(s) from the following special list of online options for your class or organization.
    • Email the following information to Poe’s program scheduler, Amanda Bodenheimer
      • Contact Information: Teacher’s Name, School/Organization Name & Address, County, and best phone number to call.
      • Class Information: Gradel Level(s) and number of participants  
      • Program Selection: List the program(s) in which you are interested
      • Program Dates & Time: Send 3 dates as options for your program, along with the preferred time(s).
