Healthy Lifestyles

Get Involved BGCKC Volunteer Healthy Lifestyle Programs doodle

Children develop habits to nurture their well-being as they grow into healthy, successful adults.

Developing good habits early leads to better health and quality of life throughout adulthood. Our Healthy Lifestyles programs teach kids the value of exercise, proper nutrition, fitness, teamwork, and sportsmanship. 

And because a healthy lifestyle includes making responsible choices, children learn the skills they need to resist drug or alcohol abuse, gang involvement, and other risky behaviors.
