ACT! (Actively Changing Together)

Coming January 2016

ACT! is a 12 week program for youth 8-14 years and their parents promoting healthy nutrition, activity and lifestyles developed in partnership with providers and professionals at Seattle Children's Hospital and the Y of Greater Seattle. The ACT! Program appeals to children and parents alike by providing engaging, fun and unique activities. By actively changing together, parents and kids can learn how to create healthy lifestyle habits as a family. Specially trained Y staff offer guidance and encouragement for eating well, playing often and preventing health conditions associated with being overweight.

For more information contact Mary Latta (mlatta@whatcomymca.org) or Tammy Bennett (tbennett@whatcomymca.org) or call 360-733-8630.
