During this interactive three-hour training, presenters will demonstrate the value of physical activity before and after school and how it fits into a larger commitment to supporting movement and emotional wellbeing for young people.
We will model fun play breaks that can be used in before and after school programs and explain how play and movement support social emotional learning and build connectedness among young people and their community.
At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Define physical activity before and after school
- Demonstrate the benefits of connecting with community organizations in order to infuse physical activity into before-school, after-school, and community-based extended day programs
- Model physical activities and explore resources for using movement in your own context
- This training is intended for individuals who have decision-making power over before and after school programming for youth. Space is limited to 40 people, and registered participants are asked to actively participate in the full three-hour session.
