Youth Take Action at Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Triple Play Leadership Summit Town Hall in Colorado Springs
With new reports showing childhood obesity
still high nationwide, more than 125 young people from Boys & Girls Clubs around the nation will convene in Colorado Springs
September 6 – 8, 2013 as Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BCGA) hosts its Triple Play Leadership Summit at the Olympic Training Center. Club staff will learn from experts and return home with leading practices and tools to use in their own communities.
According to a recent report from Trust for America’s Health, obesity rates
for children continue to track at all-time highs, a major issue for communities throughout the country. To address this, Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Triple Play program is working to combat this issue, one kid and one connection at a time. BCGA encourages its members to think of personal wellness as a three-legged stool comprised of mind, body and soul. Through Triple Play, the non-profit’s comprehensive health and wellness program, Club members are taught that they must balance all three equally to be their best.
