Besides activity, physical challenges and getting kids moving their bodies...we also had teen age coaches from local high schools that help us work with the younger kids at events. This is part of our mission. Enhancing the lives, improving skills, etc...of younger kids & their families...and young adults!
The Teens we use at events are leadership kids, national honor society kids, athletes, dancers, cheerleaders...you name it! Part Of The Play.Fit.Fun mission is to get teen coaches moving too by working with younger kids. The teens typically love it, and build/enhance communication skills (no texting!)...leadership...human engagement...plus motivating and inspiring the youngster. In turn, the K-6 graders LOVE working with high schoolers. To young children, high school teens are rock stars...and it's a great combo, and sets a great example too. WIN-WIN!
