Actively Changing Together (ACT!)
Parents and kids learn how to engage in healthy lifestyles as a family.
This 12-week virtual learning program, developed in partnership with providers and professionals at Seattle Children’s Hospital, provides engaging lessons on healthy nutrition, activity, and lifestyles and is designed for kids ages 8-14 and their parents. By actively changing together, parents and kids can learn how to engage in healthy lifestyles as a family.
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, school nurses, and physical therapists.
The program consists of one 60-minute group session per week for 12 weeks. Sessions include energizing games and activities. Specially trained Y staff offer guidance and encouragement for eating well, playing often, and preventing health conditions associated with being overweight.
As a pilot program, we're offering ACT! @ Home free to the community!
