Healthy U After School Sites

The Healthy U Afterschool Program completed its fifth year of implementation in June, 2014.  Healthy U Afterschool uses the CATCH Curriculum to promote physical activity and healthy eating among school aged youth.  The goal is to reduce and prevent obesity in youth.  Over 400 YMCA afterschool childcare programs have implemented this curriculum into their daily program impacting approximately 18,000 youth and their families.  The program curriculum is delivered to children during the afterschool care hours.  Children experience moderate to vigorous physical activities and weekly nutrition lesson and activities.
