Fitness & Recreation - Fit Kids 360 Mentor
Children of our community that fall in the 85th percentile for obesity will be referred by their physicians to participate in Fit Kids 360, a 7 week curriculum based program. Together, a licensed social worker, dietician, exercise specialist and Volunteer Mentors will work through the program to give our families the tools to lead healthier lifestyles. This is an intervention and behavior modification model. We will be tracking their progress using data analysis to see the effects of the implementation on the health of the participants completing the program.
How you can help…
The Fit Kids 360 program will run every Wednesday from January 4 - February 15, 2017 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm, AND due to popular demand we've added a second session (Thursdays, Jan. 26 - Mar. 9).
Volunteers are asked to be at every class, because it's helpful in building a relationship with the families, however, we are willing to work around schedules that may cause an occasional absence
There is a mandatory training for all of the Volunteer Mentors - please be sure to sign up for that as well.
Volunteer Mentors will be helping families complete their tracking logs, providing motivation for families through the class, assisting Social Worker, Nutritionist and/or exercise specialist with communication and participation.
