STRIDE for ALL is an elementary afterschool program for ALL children in grades 3 - 5 that strives for striking a balance between physical and mental health. Children build teamwork and communication skills through fun team challenges, activities such as running, and basic movements get kids moving simultaneously helping to build stamina and confidence.
The STRIDE for ALL curriculum highlights the need to get kids MOVING and involved with their peers. Social isolation and too much time spent on electronics is a growing concern. Our curriculum covers topics of great concern facing youth today including: Success, Respect, Healthy Competition, Teamwork, Goal Setting, Bullying, Inclusion, Making Good Decisions, Eating Healthy, Character & Conflict Resolution, racial equity, and respecting each other’s differences.
Children are given the opportunity to discuss with each other and their team leaders, and engage in interactive games and activities to support each lesson. Each child is recognized for participation, no matter what level.
STRIDE for ALL is focused on FUN & FITNESS, and developing respect for one another by contributing to the team and recognizing that we each have something to offer.
