Project LIT is a nationwide grassroots movement that started in 2016 with the primary goal of increasing access to high-quality, diverse, culturally-relevant books in order to promote a love of reading within a local community. Project LIT book selections are designed to act as either “mirrors” that allow students to see characters like themselves in literature or “windows” that allow students to gain insight into the experiences of characters that are unlike themselves. The DHHS chapter will meet on a regular basis to select and discuss these books and the culturally and socially relevant topics they cover. Follow @dhhsreads on Instagram.

Students for Health Equity (SHE)
The Students for Health Equity club aims to address health disparities faced by various communities - both domestically and abroad.

Young Life is an international Christian outreach and mentorship organization, but each club (high school) is organized on its own. At DHHS we pride ourselves on being not only welcoming, but a comfortable place for teens of all faiths, including those without. The best way to understand us is to just come see. We mostly hangout Monday nights and find something fun to do. We go to camp twice a year: a weekend camp in the school year to Sharp Top Cove, and a weeklong camp in the summer to a rotating destination. COVID-19 protocols per CDC, no negotiations!
