Game On Program
What is Game On?
Game On! Uses a mentor approach to provide boys with information and support to make informed choices about healthy lifestyle practices. Through non-traditional physical activities, complemented with healthy eating information, participants are engaged in life skills, communication and emotional health discussions designed to engage participants in the pursuit of life-long healthy lifestyles. Sessions are loosely structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.
Game On! Volunteers are active and healthy men aged 18 and up.
What Game On Volunteers Do:
Spend 75 minutes weekly with a group of boys for eight weeks. Facilitate a non-academic curriculum including activities, sports, snacks and nutrition discussion, team building and communication skill development. Hang out with approximately ten boys with another volunteer while being supported by a staff member at the school.
