Launched in June 2011, the Health Literacy Initiative promotes healthy lifestyle choices to school age children. Members act as health educators and teach a program to the children encompassing a range of topics, including exercise and fitness, tobacco use prevention, animal safety, nutrition awareness, safety and injury prevention, and oral health. The program also provides crafts and healthy and fun snacks for the students.
Health Literacy Summer Camp takes place twice a week, 2 hours per session, throughout the month of June at an elementary school during the facility’s summer program.
The Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier is proud to expand its efforts to empower youth with the knowledge and skills to make healthy choices for a lifetime.
