LearntobeHealthy.org Launches New Health Education Site for Community Organizations

LearntobeHealthy.org has provided high-quality, interactive health education resources for classroom teachers and parents for nearly three years. Now they are providing the same top-notch tools to leaders of afterschool organizations, summer camps and clubs. 

In early 2008, the Susan P. Byrnes Health Education Center began working with twelve community organization in York, PA to identify the needs of the programs and to map out the best way to repurpose and expand the current materials on the LearntobeHealthy site. 

These community partners are instrumental in transforming the pre-existing educational materials on LearntobeHealthy.org into tools relevant to community leaders. Lesson plans will be amended to meet the needs of after-school programs, summer camps, and clubs. More hands-on resources and take-home materials are being added to encourage families to embrace health. News and specific information pertinent to community organizations is also offered on this new site. 

New materials and resources will continue to be added throughout 2008 and 2009.
