Healthy Bodies/Healthy Minds
UCHealth and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Colorado have come together to offer a unique program that will touch over 300 of our Club members. The Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds programming will help our youngest citizens develop wellness techniques to care equally for their mind and body for a lifetime. The program will also teach youth how to engage in self-care and not look to self-medicate, preventing the use of substances.
The Club will create increased opportunities for active play, mindfulness, substance prevention programs and quality time with caring adult role models. Programs started in the teen center on October 1 and in the lower Club on October 19. the programming will include:
SMART Moves (Skills, Mastery, and Resistance Training) is the primary prevention program along with Marijuana Education Initiative.
Mindfulness will be taught through 5 senses activities, “Spidey Sense” and Yoga.
Active play will include moderate to vigorous exercise in fun and engaging games that are age appropriate.
The Clubs will couple these direct programs with an overall Club Experience that gives youth a sense of belonging and usefulness where they can create relationships with caring adult role models.
Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds is based on Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Healthy Lifestyles programming. Club staff benefits from learning best practices and having access to research through the national office. The Clubs are combining these programming resources with what staff sees as kids need in additional support and skills. As youth development professionals, staff have a good pulse on the needs of kids and families, creating a great partnership of best practices and local delivery.
