Healthy #AfterschoolWorks: Free Tools, Resources, & Strategies

Posted by Afterschool Alliance on April 24, 2017

With so many competing priorities in afterschool, it’s easy for healthy eating and physical activity (HEPA) to become less of a focus, but a quality afterschool experience is a healthy afterschool experience. The great news is that thousands of afterschool and recreation professionals, guided by the National Afterschool Association HEPA Standards, are finding innovative ways to blend healthy eating and physical activity best practices with STEM, literacy, creative arts, and outdoor education.

Join us and experts from the National AfterSchool Association, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and Gwinnett County, Ga., as we explore free resources and tools to engage students and families while helping you tell the story that Healthy #AfterschoolWorks.
