October 20th: Champions for Health Girl Scout Workshop

$5.00

Program Name:  Champions for Health, a Brownie Quest and Agent of Change workshop

Who:  Brownies and Juniors

When: Saturday October 20th, 2016 from 10 a.m. – noon

Where:  Johnson County Central Resource Library 9875 W 87th St. Overland Park, KS 66212

What: Champions for Health! Girl Scouts will learn how to practice healthy habits in their own life and how to create a healthy community. Girls will set personal health goals, investigate how neighborhoods can promote or hinder health, write to city leaders about barriers to health they have seen in their own community and, as a troop, develop an action plan to improve the health of their neighborhood. KC Healthy Kids will provide technical support and information on community partnerships to assist in the troop’s action plan.

At the end of this program, girls will have thought critically about their own health habits and will have worked collaboratively to create a take action project, helping them advance the work they are doing in the journey, Brownie Quest and Agent of Change Power of Team and Power of Community Awards. By examining their own health habits and setting a goal for improvement, girls will work to earn a few steps in their “My Best Self” Badge. Also, as a part of our Champions for Health program, KC Healthy Kids hosts a Photo Contest each year for schools. As an action plan, girls can serve as student leaders for the photo contest, working towards their “Digital Photography” Badge and possibly winning $1,000 for their school to be used for a health and wellness project.
