With budget cuts to physical education programs and academics being prioritized over physical activity during the school day, after school programs have a unique position to get youth active. Recognizing this importance, the California Department of Education(CDE) developed voluntary physical activity guidelines for state-funded after school programs.
In response, CANFIT created a pilot project testing the CDE-developed guidelines in after school programs serving low income communities. With funding from the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, this exclusive brief provides an overview of the pilot project to implement the guidelines and how they can work effectively in after school programs, especially those with limited funding.
