School Enrichment Programs

WTN Youth Enrichment programs grow a WELLcommunity from the ground up by empowering the next generation.

Wellness literacy should be a priority from an early age, and that learning should encompass both mental and physical wellbeing. Many schools do not present health and wellness as such within the current frameworks. WTN School Enrichment programs encourage a growth mindset and focus on all facets of wellness.

Linked to the National Health Education Standards, as published by the Center for Disease Control, WTN curricula educate students through targeted lessons and activities that promote personal health. *Through collaborative efforts, experiential learning, and community projects students will:

  • Forge a positive learning environment and encouraging team dynamic
  • Discuss how activity and nutrition affect personal health
  • Learn about overall wellness and the relationship between physical and mental wellbeing
  • Set and track individual and group goals
  • Participate in fun routines of physical activity
  • Grow their awareness of health resources as well as the pros and cons of technology
  • Enhance their sense of responsibility for giving back to the community
  • Develop inclusive vocabulary and willingness to make mistakes
  • Identify personal, trusted adults.
  • Practice peer to peer support skills

These developing programs, available to school systems, parks & recreation departments, and other community partners are the cornerstone of Well Together Now.

*Programming is modified to meet the needs and demographics of the target audience.

WTN Girls C.A.N. – Fostering wellness through Confidence, Activity, & Nutrition

**Psychological research and literature point to a concerning downward trend of self-esteem in girls as they age to young adults. Data includes significantly higher levels of self-doubt as reported by girls versus boys. What’s more, educational studies highlight the value of providing optional single-gender learning environments as opportunities to reduce the stigma of failure or rejection and to facilitate safe risk-taking behavior within the female population.

WTN Girls C.A.N. offers a motivating, judgment-free space where girls can thrive. The curriculum emphasizes a growth mindset and the salient relationship between connectedness and wellbeing. Through guided lessons, girls learn and practice skills that empower them to self-advocate, take calculated risks and make informed choices. As a result, girls develop a foundation of confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging. Through an inclusive design, this experience fosters healthy habits and resilience.

 WTN Girls C.A.N. Enrichment Programs include differentiated content given the age range of the audience. The customizable scope of the curriculum meets the needs of varied community clients. Please contact Coach Dawn to discuss the specifics of your demographics, timeline, and space.
