This presentation is based on the work of one man who used a service-learning model to create a video education project on healthy living. It made a positive impact in his community reaching over 950 kids. Thinking BIG, he connected with neighboring schools in low income areas with high risk for obesity and inactivity. With the Alliance's resources and support, learn how youth can empower others to make positive change for a healthier generation.
