Providing programs and experiences that build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.

From picky eater to healthy leader! Tavion has been coming to our programs for several years now and he is one of our most dynamic personalities. Our staff were concerned about Tavion’s eating habits – he usually brought cookies for breakfast and he was reluctant to try healthy foods offered during program. Our staff developed the “Polite Bites” activity that encouraged Tavion and his peers to try new healthy foods. Every time one of them tried a food they had never tried before, the staff would cheer and the youth’s camp group would get a point. Tavion loved the activity and he quickly became one of the top point earners for his camp group. As Tavion started eating healthier foods, both in our program and at home, he stopped crashing mid-day and he started being a leader with the other youth in showing positive behavior. Tavion is no longer such a picky eater and his mom is helping him keep his good nutrition habits.
