Girl + 1 Healthy Living Workshop

This program is designed to cover the 7 dimensions of Health and Wellness.  Our Girl + 1 workshop focusses on girls in the 4th through 12th grades and their caregivers to provide essential information to promote a healthy lifestyle. This is a holistic view of healthy behaviors including occupational, mental, physical & nutritional health. Young persons are more likely to adopt healthy eating behaviors when they learn about these behaviors through fun, participatory activities. Lessons emphasize the positive, appealing aspects of healthy behaviors rather than the negative consequences of unhealthy behaviors.
