99 Ways to Make Your After-school Program Even Healthier

Confused by all of the nutrition and physical activity information out there? Not sure what you can do with a limited budget? Looking for ideas that would appeal to youth from different cultures?

Join us for a presentation that highlights the work of CANFIT, a national non-profit that has been working since 1993 to build the nutrition and physical activity capacity of community based organizations that work with low-income youth of color. Learn how to access national after school nutrition and physical activity guidelines, and have your specific questions addressed. We guarantee that you’ll come away from this webinar with at least 3 ideas that you can immediately implement at your after school program.
