My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Prevention Partners, Chapel Hill, NC, USA
I am a school board member in Durham, NC and believe our schools must offer students a healthy environment in which to learn. The district Wellness Coordinator has worked with NC PRevention Partners and their Zone Health program to help our schools promote physical activity and good nutrition among students and faculty.
Our schools have used Zone Health to support the establishment of school-based wellness committees, which can use the online tools to assess the needs of the school, create action plans, and develop programs and policies to address the health needs of the schools. Our district has also worked with NCPP and Work Healthy America to create an employee wellness program in the district and to help individual schools foster staff wellness.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my school district.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
align the Zone Health school assessment criteria with those of the Healthier US School Challenge so schools can improve and qualify for awards from the federal government and Zone Health.
