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 worked closely with schools and other organizations between 2008 and 2011 to facilitate implementation of the Health Champions Program Guide (curriculum). While the funding to support this program has ended and we are no longer able to assist with implementation, we are offering the curriculum to any group or individual interested in using it to provide teens in our community with the tools they need to live a healthy life. The duration of the program is flexible to meet the needs of each school or organization.
