BICC provides many different programs to strengthen families and individuals throughout Bradley County. There's a wonderful program for any age from prenatal to the oldest member of the family! Each one helps with different focuses of life such as communication between generations of families, parent education for children up to 5 years of age, youth leadership skill building, and mentoring between adults and youth. There's no cost to participate, and the curriculum is evidence-based. Those who participate will take away some valuable information and skills that can change the rest of their lives!
