Healthy Relationship Curriculum
REAL Essentials curriculum will be administered throughout York County High Schools. REAL Essentials administers a curriculum that educates students about healthy relationships. The curriculum specifically talks about protective factors, administers as a tool to assess the characteristics of sex and STD/HIV education programs, includes a systematic method for assessing risk-avoidance tool (SMARTool), and a general health education curriculum analysis tool. The innovative curriculum is being used across the country to teach high school students critical relationship skills and practical approaches for navigating the social dynamics of friendship and love.
Activities include helping students recognize their own identity and how it affects their relations with others, how to recognize and respect differences in others, effective communication techniques for navigating conflict and expressing oneself, how to develop health dating strategies and ideas for staying connected with good friends, safe social media guidelines and viewing advertisements through an accurate lens, creating vision and applying it to future dreams and success, the benefits of commitment and marriage, developing leadership skills for gaining future employment and keeping a job, and sex in the context of love and its effect on whole person health
In York County the Palmetto Women’s Center currently is administering this curriculum in a week long on-site interactive classroom curriculum at South Pointe High School. Prior to the week of classroom time, Palmetto Women’s Center hosts a Parent Panel to discuss the goals and objectives of the curriculum. An additional Parent Forum is conducted after the completion of the curriculum to summarize experiences and continue to build the continuum of resources and skills for the growing youth of York County.
PWC hopes to extend services to all 18 high schools and over 400 churches and several higher learning institutions in York County with additional partnerships and shared resources within York County.
Student Advisory Council
Our student and campus programs were created with the purpose to transform culture by helping young people make abortion unthinkable and obsolete on their campus, in their community, and in our nation.
We will achieve this goal by educating our students on what it really means to be prolife and by engaging them in community events where they can share their beliefs with others.
PWC has a student council which consist of prolife students from all the high schools in York County. As Student Advisors they will give feedback and participate with marketing, advertising, design, social media, curriculum and other communications focused on high school students.

I’m your not-so-typical, seventeen year old gal, living in South Carolina, writing my way through every day life. If I’m not at school or work, you can find me either hiking, creating music, or at Palmetto Women’s Center.
I’ll be writing on different topics regarding current teenage issues and how abortion is affecting our world and generation.
I’d love if you would subscribe and come along with me on this journey!!!

Student Bags at Winthrop University
Palmetto Women's Center teamed up with Winthrop Campus Ministries to serve students with gift bags prior to fall finals. The goal was to fill 2,200 goody bags, one for each student, to be delivered in time for finals.
College students are in the number one age group having abortions so it is critical we build our presence on the campus.
We are thankful for the connections we have made on our college campuses and we look forward to how that will grow through the years.
If you would like to partner with us to help fill the bags with items for our next distribution send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your consideration of supporting this project.
