Inspiring youth success

Project Inspire logoEstablished in 2017, Project Inspire is USA Health’s multi-week, hospital-based injury prevention program which combines trauma center exposure, mentorship and career development. Through an ongoing partnership with the Strickland Youth Center, local juvenile offenders gain unique insight into the consequences of gun violence through tours of University Hospital’s Fanny Meisler Trauma Center - taking them from the trauma bay to the morgue. Participants shadow staff in both clinical and administrative areas of the hospital and complete career planning activities, such as ACT/GED preparation, resumé development and mock interviews. They also receive training in Basic Life Support and Stop The Bleed and participate in community service projects. Aimed to curb violent crime among at-risk youth, Project Inspire seeks to help participants become the best version of themselves.

Project Inspire is possible in part thanks to gifts from our supporters. Please click below to make a contribution to the program.
