Media-Smart Youth®: Eat, Think and Be Active!
Join Let’s Move Faith and Communities for a special series of webinar trainings that equip health leaders to run Media-Smart Youth, an after-school program designed to help young people ages 11 to 13 understand the connections between media and health and to help youth build media analysis and production skills. Media-Smart Youth uses nutrition and physical activity examples to help youth think critically about how media influences the choices they make. It is part of We Can!, a science-based national education program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that provides parents, caregivers and communities with tools and strategies to help families improve food choices, increase physical activity and reduce screen time.
We hope you can join us for an upcoming webinar training on Media-Smart Youth:
