What are the benefits for students?
What are the benefits for teachers and administrators?
How can we help our nation’s youth learn to make healthy decisions each day? We see many young people struggling with obesity, substance abuse, reckless driving, and other behaviors that put their health and longevity at risk. With a Force For Health Club, schools can give students the space to learn how to make decisions that will benefit their own health and learn how to then share that knowledge with others.
Force For Health (FFH) clubs can benefit students and the school community in countless ways. FFH clubs provide:
- On-campus student leadership roles
- Exposure to career opportunities
- Opportunities for service projects and service-based learning
- Experience working with the community
- Promotion of health and well-being to help students maximize time spent at school
We urge you to consider the establishment of a Force For Health Club (FFHC) in your school. The cost of an FFHC are determined by the resources available in your organization, but effective clubs need not require more than time and enthusiasm from members and club leadership. The benefits of enabling your students to make conscious decisions to improve the well-being of themselves, their loved ones, and their communities at large. We can all do something to take better care of ourselves and those we care about; let a Force For Health Club be a starting point for your students to take that journey.
