The Southside Health Careers Exploring Program consists of a summer program  providing a one-of-a-kind camp for rising 10th, 11th, & 12th graders.

The Health Careers Exploring Program is brought to our region by Southside Health Education Foundation in partnership with the co-educational Boy Scouts’ Learning for Life Program and with funding from the John Randolph Foundation, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the Cameron Foundation and the Community Foundation serving Richmond and Central Virginia. Additional partners include hospitals, health care providers, and colleges and universities.

The Southside Health Education Foundation

Supporting education through scholarships, SHEF is committed to growing the number of healthcare workers who live and work in Southside Virginia. Our service region includes the tri-cties of Petersburg, Hopewell and Colonial Heights and the counties of Dinwiddie, Prince George, Sussex and southeastern Chesterfield. 

When residents from our region find great, well-paying jobs in our own backyard, they stay here, raise families here and build their lives here. Scholarship applications are accepted from individuals affiliated with the region as a resident, healthcare employee or student.
