the project

With the money raised, we will be able to begin the LYFFE program, which has been undergoing development for several months. Funding for this program is essential to provide takehomes for the students, so they can take a piece of knowledge with them to share after each lesson.

It is crucial to provide students, at a young age, with the tools and knowledge to be both health and economically conscious. 

    The LYFFE program and instruction will help students make healthy and knowledgeable choices throughout their lifetime. Effective instruction will result in positive changes in behavior involving discussions and activities regarding:

  • Hygiene & Healthy Habits

  • Emotional Health and Well-being 

  • Nutrition & Exercise 

  • Financial Understanding and Resourcefulness

    The curriculum also aims to provide students with a strong understanding of additional topics such as finance and secondary education (education after high school).

 

the steps

Once our team has the funding, we will begin ordering all the materials listed and have them ready for each appropriate week of the program. For example, we will provide the toothbrushes, toothpastes, and floss during the hygiene lesson, and there will be healthy snacks at each weeks' lesson.

why we're doing it

In the Warrendale Neighborhood, health consciousness and awareness could be raised. By providing the youth at Warrendale Charter Academy with lessons, methods, and skills for improving health and financial habits, the community will benefit immensely. This initial pilot program will start with ~25 students who will share the new knowledge with their family, and hang onto it as they grow and find their way through adolescence, and eventually adulthood.
