Health Champions is a program designed to increase physical activity and healthy lifestyle knowledge and behaviors, as well as to promote advocacy for a healthy environment among middle- and high-school participants. The program, provided free of charge, can be implemented by a facilitator at any school or organization in San Diego County that works with adolescents.
The Center for Healthier Communities at Rady Children’s Hospital provides organizations with the Health Champions Program Guide (curriculum). The duration of the program is flexible to meet the needs of each school or organization. We hope you will partner with us to provide teens in our community with the tools they need to live a healthy life.
