To inspire, educate and empower children, families and the community to live their best lives in mind and body
Programs and Services
Your donation will help thousands of school children, from kindergarten through second grade, to experience the upbeat and dynamic Wellsville Goes to School, a health literacy assembly program.
Every year for the past 15 years, Wellsville Goes to School reaches 1,500 to 2,000 students in Erie city and county schools. The program features a high-energy assembly and health literacy resources provided to students and teachers to use throughout the school year. The program and resources focus on eating well, being active, being kind, reducing stress, increasing self-esteem and being one’s best self.
While some WGTS staff, including a physician, high school students, and adults volunteer their time, the program does provide small stipends for the Wellsville coordinator, a dietitian, and a certified children fitness specialist/health coach. It also incurs costs for materials to conduct the program and the health literacy resources given to teachers and students for classroom use. A detailed report is generated each year to measure the program’s impact and success. Please visit www.wellsville.tv/WGTS to see exciting video testimonials and pictures from the assemblies.
