Out of School Time – SNAP-Ed

HealthMPowers’ Out of School Time program partners with Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta engaging 24 clubs and reaching over 6000 youth and families through a year-round comprehensive program that includes physical activity and nutrition direct education, family events and youth engagement.

Nutrition education is integrated into programming using a “farm to club” model.  Youth experience edible education in the kitchen and garden, fruit and vegetable taste tests, farm field trips and farmer experiences. Families access to fresh food is supported by parent nutrition classes and farmers market connections.

Physical Activity is increased for all youth through scheduling and programming throughout the club. Non-traditional sports and non-competitive games are utilized in every program area.

Youth health advocates participate in a Healthy Lifestyles Club, and through their leadership, they influence peers and parents.  This material was funded by USDA’s SNAP and other HealthMPowers partners.   This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
