Abstinence Education Program

In the fall of 2013, we began teaching the LIFEguard Program ™ in all Wilkes County 9th grade Health classes. We joined forces with Wilkes County schools to teach the state required abstinence portion of their Healthy Living Curriculum.

Each semester we schedule a 3-day program which focuses on Character Building, Choices & Consequences, Setting Boundaries, Healthy Relationships, Goals & Dreams & information on STD's & STI's with an emphasis on choosing abstinence until marriage as a healthy choice. About a year later we introduced LIFEguard to our 7th grade middle schools. It is our goal to not only see a reduction in teen pregnancy but also a decrease in the number of teens with STD's & STI's.

The LIFEguard Program ™ was designed by Coastal Pregnancy Center in Morehead City and has been used successfully for the past 13 years in Carteret County Schools. Wilkes Pregnancy Care Center has the permission of Coastal Pregnancy Center to use their LIFEguard Program ™ materials. For more information visit:

Post Abortion Recovery Support

We understand that abortion may cause emotional, spiritual, and physical pain. WPCC offers two programs (Forgiven and Set Free and SaveOne) to help anyone suffering after an abortion "to bring their emotional scars from abortion "out of the dark past and into His holy light,' where true and lasting healing can take place."
