Classes and Community

Our commitment to the well-being of children goes beyond our walls. We connect with kids, their families and their communities by advocating for child health, offering classes on topics such as puberty and babysitting, and providing free or low-cost safety and injury-prevention gear.

Take a class with your pre-teen girl or boy to talk about social issues and sexuality. Find classes in Bellevue and Seattle, and on Bainbridge Island.

Experts from our department of Adolescent Medicine help parents and caregivers navigate the teen years.
