To implement Health Champions at your school or organization, you will need to identify a facilitator to lead the program. The facilitator can download the Health Champions Program Guide from this website.
Recommendations for Success:
- Decide on dates and times to implement the Health Champions curriculum with a group of High School or Middle School age students. Then create an implementation plan (we recommend implementing at least six full sessions, 1 session per week)
- Download the Health Champions Program Guide for free.
- Follow the program guide and help your students become Health Champions!
The Guide includes everything you need to lead a group of participants through a series of weekly sessions. You will also find the Health Champions pre and post survey that you can use as a tool for measuring your program outcomes.
