Actively Changing Together (ACT!)
Parents and kids learn how to engage in healthy lifestyles as a family.
We are committed to helping you achieve your goals at the YMCA of Greater Seattle.
ACT! is a 12 week program for youth 8-14 years and their parents. The program, developed in partnership with providers and professionals at Seattle Children’s Hospital, promotes healthy nutrition, activity and lifestyles. By actively changing together, parents and kids can learn how to engage in healthy lifestyles as a family.
The program consists of one 90-minute group session per week for 12 weeks. Sessions include energizing games, activities and a light meal. Specially trained Y staff offer guidance and encouragement for eating well, playing often, and preventing health conditions associated with being overweight.
This program requires a referral from a medical provider. We accept referrals from many types of medical providers, including primary care and specialist physicians, nursing staff, registered dietitians, schools nurses, and physical therapists.
