Healthy Lifestyles

Outcome: All members adopt a healthy diet, practice healthy lifestyle choices and make a lifelong commitment to fitness.

The health habits developed in adolescence affect health and quality of life throughout adulthood.

Our members learn the value of exercise, proper nutrition, fitness, teamwork and sportsmanship through team sports and group activities. As a result, they develop the skills they need to resist drug or alcohol abuse, gang involvement and other risky behaviors.
