ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Through funding from the Ball Brothers Foundation, the YOC was able to launch the YOC Health and Wellness program in July 2009.  Since the birth of YOC Wellness we’ve taken a strategic approach in our implementation.  In short, we believe wellness is a state of physical, intellectual, emotional, community, and spiritual well-being and not merely the absence of disease or illness.  Wellness at the YOC is designed to reflect this belief.

Recreational activities that build bodies and self-confidence

Emotional support that levels the peaks and valleys of life

Community engagement that encourages connectivity

Spiritual guidance that clarifies purpose

HEALTH & WELLNESS

For Staff

Whereas wellness is concerned with preventive practices that will increase one’s overall well-being, health is concerned with treating the physical body and addressing areas which will improve an individuals biomedical outcomes.  Both are vitally important.  That’s why we provide an appealing health benefit package as well as wellness services.

YOC Wellness

When we ask employees about what makes the YOC a great place to work they say things like “YOC has a family-friendly atmosphere”, or “it’s all about caring for others”, or “I feel at home here.”  These statements are a testament to the vibrant culture at the YOC.  In a word, the culture of the YOC is “caring.”

The YOC Wellness team has weaved in various components of wellness into our caring culture.  If you spend much time here you’ll see how it is flourishing throughout our campus and in our employees.
