Happy New Year All,
So What Else is looking for some committed volunteers interested in working with youth after-school. As a volunteer you will be assisting program staff with the after-school programs they will be teaching.
Integrative wellness is a 12 week after-school program that starts January 10th at multiple locations and will continue until the end of spring.
The Integrative Wellness Program takes a comprehensive approach to teaching kids the importance of living their healthiest life. It combines hands on cooking workshops, nutrition education, mindfulness practices, movement and fitness activities to engage students in new and creative ways to stay healthy.
Throughout this course, students are exposed to topics such as healthy foods, sustainable diets, seasonal and local produce, health risks posed by processed foods and sugars, yoga and meditation, stress management and the importance of staying active.
Service learning is also integrated into this program by researching and discussing openly the topics of food insecurity, food deserts, hunger and homelessness. Students participate in cooking a healthy meal or snack to donate to a nearby homeless shelter or to community members in need.
If you are interested in helping our youth out, looking for a resume builder, or need to get credit hours for a class please sign up for more information.
