Targeted PreventionSpanish speaking families and individualsNo costA program developed by the National Latino Children’s Institute (NCIL) and facilitated by two leaders on-site at the YWCA of Asheville. Facilitators and volunteers help both parents and children think about physical activity and healthy eating every day. The program centers around culturally-relevant activities and discussions that highlight ways that families can make small steps each week towards their wellness goals. We do fun, educational activities like a scavenger hunt that teaches families about reading nutrition labels, and we dance and play physical games every week. The YWCA offers Salsa completely in Spanish, provides all families with a complete gym and pool membership during the 8 week sessions, and follows up with families with any relevant wellness opportunities.Grants
