2) Creating a Fit Town™ in Communities Across the Country
Through “Fit Town,” teens are challenged to reach beyond the school yard to help other students, their families and their communities experience wellness through service. Through Fit Town, students identify a condition in their home, school, or community that needs improvement and then develop a plan to create a healthier environment. Fit Town also connects students with Nature and the “built” environment.
Fit Town projects have included:
- Photovoice identifying nature-deficient community settings
- School & Community Gardens
- Beautification and clean-ups of schools and public space to bring in Nature
- Bodega and convenience store makeovers to bring in fresh foods
- Identifying and beautifying outdoor spaces for physical activity
- Large-scale “Highway to Health” Fairs and Festivals for the community
3) Advocacy: HealthCorps advocates for healthy public policy across all levels of government. Their goal is to put health and physical education back into the core curriculum of the American education system.
