WEBINAR: DIY Activities to Help Kids Move More

A National AfterSchool Association PD Opportunity

Course Purpose:

The purpose of this course is to provide educators and out-of-school time professionals easy and DIY activities to get kids in their program more physically active and moving.

Why is this important?

According to the Alliance for Healthier Generation:

• Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years.
• Today, 1 in 3 children and adolescents, ages 2-19, are overweight or obese - triple the rate from just one generation ago.
• Most adolescents fall short of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommendation of at least 60 minutes of aerobic physical activity each day.
• in 2009 only 33% of students had access to and attended daily physical education classes in school.
• The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008.

As out-of-school time professionals, you have the opportunity to provide activities that require students to be physically active.

Target Audience:

We have designed this online course for out-of-school time professionals in before and after school, summer camps, school age or recreation programs.

Course Description:

This webinar course from the National AfterSchool Association was created for professionals looking for activities that are fun and engaging, easy to implement, and can be done with supplies on hand.
